»Kimi has one of the best seasons of her career. In terms of efficiency, it is among the top five drivers, according to what we saw in the first part of the season. I know that Kimi dreams of climbing the podium as an Alfa Romeo driver. Last but not least, he managed to do so with historic teams such as Ferrari, Lotus and McLaren. I expected more from the Alpha team. From my friend Furbatt's car, I think. We will also see how the appeal against the penalty in Germany will unfold. “
