Therefore, find out everything about Christijan Albers’ wife, Liselore Kooijman, and her whereabouts.
Spectacularly Private Person
When one marries an international personality, s/he also marries the fame and that, my PEOPLE, makes privacy liberty. However, very few manage to maintain privacy and ground their personal information grounded. One among them is the gorgeous Christijan Albers’ wife, Liselore Kooijman.
Liselore is a very secretive person and prefers to keep her life confidential. She is likely to stay away from Facebook and shares 1,394 posts amongst her 100+ Instagram followers. Maybe, Mrs. Albers likes to keep her business to herself.
Furthermore, Albers’ spouse’s Instagram’s bio reads, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”- Aristotle.” Well, Liselore is reportedly the daughter of Spyker financier Roel Kooijman. Other than this little piece of information, she became well-versed in keeping her personal life private.
Despite maintaining utter silence about her whereabouts, Liselore still accompanies her husband to important races. The pair spend an ample amount of time together, and they seemingly made a pact to keep their marital life a private matter since both of them keep their distance from social media.
Besides keeping the majority of her life to herself, Liselore attempted to write a Pump in de pits book based on her experience as a Formula One driver’s wife.
Author of Novel, Pumps in de pits
As mentioned earlier, Christijan Albers’ sweetheart is a secretive person. But, she could not wait but share her insight on how F1 looks like from the eye of the racing driver’s wife.

During an interview, Liselore shared how her interest in wording her experience sparked. Upon asked how she came up with the idea to write a book, she revealed that her understanding of so many unique moments with her husband intrigued her.
Moreover, Liselore also added that Formula 1 is much more than what people see on the television, and so much more happens before the lights turn green. Hence, Christijan Albers’ spouse wanted the world to witness the F1 through the woman’s eyes.
Likewise, Liselore was also asked if the life of a real driver’s wife is comparable to that of the fictional character, to which she replied, ‘it is indeed comparable.’ However, one of the book reviews defies her statement. According to a reader’s review from Goodreads, he pointed out that Mrs. Albers was an authoritative source when it was about the functioning of sports politics.
But, the reviewer also pointed out that Liselore appeared ignorant in many other aspects. The person also added that she finds it ‘utterly normal’ that people live in extreme luxury. Also, the character’s intellect/status was dictated by the brand she wears.
While a reader criticized a few unrealistic approaches to Liselore’s book, another reader described it as an ‘effortless read.’ Well, Liselore Albers’ book did receive a good response overall. For now, let’s see where it all started for the couple.
Married In 2006

Furthermore, Christijan Albers’ wife, Liselore Albers, consciously chose to travel the world with him as a full-time driver’s wife.

Liselore also put the Netherlands to her favorite destinations but would never want to go back to the Magnicourt in France. She described the place as ‘the least romantic, least attractive place to go.’
Well, the Albers couple traveled the world together, and their adorable children also joined them.
