Christijan Albers ex Spyker’s driverChristijan Albers says he was “unpleasantly surprised” by the news that he would no longer continue at the Spyker team this year. Albers was dropped from the team on Tuesday, with Spyker saying one of the driver’s sponsors had failed to fulfil sponsorship payment deadlines.

The Dutchman admitted Spyker’s decision came as a surprise to him, claiming he had been promised the seat for the whole season despite the problems with his sponsor.

“Despite the problems with the previous named sponsor I got a written and vocal agreement in January 2007 that I would drive the entire year,” Albers wrote on his website.

“During the past season I tried to focus on the racing and left the commercial aspects to my advisors.

“The decision to stop the cooperation was an unpleasant surprise and it’s a shame that I can’t drive the B version of the car now,” he added.
