(Motorsport-Complete.com) – Alfa Romeo driver Antonio Giovinazzi starts 2020 in his second full Formula 1 season. The Italian expects to be much better prepared on the grid in Melbourne at the start of the season. “I learned a lot in my first season,” he emphasizes to ' RaceFans.earn '.
Already 2017 Giovinazzi was at the Sizable Prix of Australia at the Open, but at that time only as a replacement for the injured Pascal Wehrlein in the Sauber. For the third time he 2020 will contest the race. He hopes to get a better start to the season than last year.
2019 he could hardly stand against teammates in the first half of the season Kimi Raikkonen claim that the race in Belgium was the turning point. In his home race in Italy, the first world championship points followed with ninth place.
“Of course I still have a lot to improve”, knows the 26 – year-old. “I am sure that in season two in Melbourne I am much better prepared than 2019.” His goal for the coming year is clear: “I want to be consistent and score points every weekend.”
He only managed this four times last year. The midfield will also be hotly contested 2020, especially because the regulations have not changed significantly. “The cars will be pretty similar. Especially in midfield it will be very tight. It will be a tough season.”
