Alfa Romeo’s Antonio Giovinazzi Hopes To Be ‘Very Close to Top Ten’ at Home Country Imola

Antonio Giovinazzi came in 12th at Bahrain but hopes to bank in very close to the top ten with an improved Alfa Romeo. The next Grand Prix is at Imola, where the likes of Mercedes and Williams will surely struggle due to the windy conditions. Imola will help show the great achievements their engineers have done as they look to contend for points.

Last year, Alfa Romeo had a fantastic time at this venue as they earned double points finish. Antonio Giovinazzi hopes to provide a positive performance for his team and the fans repeating the race again.

I asked Giovinazzi to talk a bit about the new season and the new car. He said, “Compared to the start of last season, we are much faster and have a much better car. We can be happy about the step forward we have made. It wasn’t enough to bring home points but we are very close to the top ten. Now my focus is on Imola, racing again in my home country and hopefully achieving a good result to make the Tifosi at home happy.”

Will Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Raikkonen be teammates in 2022?

The 41-year-old had a strong start to his 20th season coming in 11th just two seconds shy of points. With his contract coming to an end this season, Kimi doesn’t think his future depends on the team’s performance on the track. When asked if he thinks this year has to be better than the previous one. Kimi said, “I doubt it is going to make any difference on what happens next year. Obviously the better we can do the more fun it is not just for us as drivers but for the team and everybody is happier the better you do.”

To remain in F1 for 20 years is a tough job, and Kimi Raikkonen has showcased immense talent during his time. But with a lot of drivers waiting for an opportunity, you can expect nothing much.
