Future secured? Antonio Giovinazzi has significantly improved Zoom


For eight races he remained without points, while teammate Kimi Raikkonen regularly scored the points with the Alfa Romeo. But since the summer break, he has turned the tide: While Räikkönen has not increased his points account since the resumption of the season, Giovinazzi has at least three of his four World Cup points in the past four races brought. In qualifying, he has been in the lead three times in the last race.

The (***********************) – year old has joined Alfa Romeo only one contract until the end of the season. Four races to go therefore raises the question of the future the US more urgent. “There's nothing really new, but as I've often said, if I can continue with the results I've shown in previous races, nobody will be able to take that cockpit from me.”

The Concern looks good: Ferrari has the right to occupy one of the cockpits at Alfa Romeo. This cockpit Giovinazzi sure this year. However, no one pushes itself from below. He continues to replace Ferrari.


That's why Mattia Binotto also has a keen eye on the achievements of his compatriot. “I have a good relationship with him and in Singapore he said that Ferrari always supports me and keeps track of my progress, it's great, as a driver you need that support and now it's up to me to do the best possible job.”
