Alexander Albon admits he has no regrets after making an "easy decision" to switch from Formula E to Formula 1.
The Thai-British driver had a contract in place with Nissan e.Dams in the all-electric championship for the 2018/19 season alongside Sebastian Buemi.
However, Toro Rosso offered the ex-Formula 2 driver a full-time drive to replace Brendon Hartley, who left the team after one full season.
Albon has impressed at his four F1 Grands Prix so far this year, scoring points at two while showing some impressive pace in qualifying.
The 23-year-old says there was always a risk making the move to F1 at such late notice, but insists F1 has always been his dream, so there were no concerns.
"Coming from Formula E, making the transition, there is always a risk there,” Albon said.
“But when I was six years old, whenever I thought about motorsport, Formula 1 is what any driver wants to do when they’re young.
“Of course even from Formula 2, the goal was always Formula 1. But as it looked less and less likely. That’s when I went to Formula E.
“So when I got the chance again, it was quite clear to me what I wanted to do. Of course there is less stability in Formula 1 probably, but still saying that, in Formula E you still have to perform, you still have to deliver results.
“On my side, it was just no regrets. You don’t want to miss out on your one chance on Formula 1. So that was quite an easy decision."
Albon currently sits 15th in the drivers' world championship with three points to his name.
