LONDON, Sept 16 (Reuters) – Williams Formula One driver Alex Albon said he hoped to race in Singapore on Oct. 2 after missing last weekend’s Italian Grand Prix with appendicitis but recognised it could be tough.

The 26-year-old Thai was replaced at Monza by Dutch reserve Nyck de Vries, who finished ninth on his debut.

Albon premiered from hospital on Tuesday and is recovering in the home in Monaco prior to the Singapore round which starts with repetition on Sept. 30.

“Personally i think pretty good, Personally i think OK,” he said in a video message on social media marketing.

“Obviously on Saturday I had hook issue and the doctors did an incredible job. I’m very grateful they got me in a healthy body and from the hospital by Tuesday.

“I am in Monaco since that time, I am beginning to walk around and the target is to be equipped for Singapore that is likely to be tough. It’s among the toughest races that people go to, so it is no easy one.

“But let’s aim high and see what goes on.”

Williams said on Monday that Albon suffered “unexpected post-operative anaesthetic complications which resulted in respiratory failure” and had spent Saturday night in intensive care.

He was taken off mechanical ventilation on Sunday.
