Alfa Romeo Racing Team Quotes

Weather: dry, 26-27°C air, 27-29°C track

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Racing and CEO Sauber Motorsport AG:
“It was a solid race for us, with both drivers putting up a good fight. Kimi stayed steady throughout and brought home some more points for our team. Antonio showed a strong performance, gaining 5 positions and finishing in P11, very close to the points. Our pace was good and the team worked well together. It has been a positive start to the season for us and we look forward to seeing what we will achieve at the next Grand Prix in China.”

Kimi Räikkönen (car number 7):
Alfa Romeo Racing C38 (Chassis 02/Ferrari)
Result: 7th. Start on soft (C3) tyres, after 9 laps change to medium (C2) tyres and after 33 laps change to soft tyres (C3)
“It was a nice race, there were some good battles. In the middle of the race we had a bit of a tricky moment, with the wind and the tyres posing a challenge. By the second pitstop the car felt really good. Step by step, we will try to make everything more solid and will make more progress.”

Antonio Giovinazzi (car number 99):
Alfa Romeo Racing C38 (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Result: 11th. Start on soft (C3) tyres, after 16 laps change to medium (C2) tyres and after 40 laps change to soft (C3) tyres
“It was a good but challenging race. I could make some good advances and had a good pace at the end of the race. Unfortunately, I couldn’t challenge for 10th place because of the safety car. We were really close to the points and that is positive. Now I have to stay focused and keep working for the next race in Shanghai.”

  1. I drive an Alfa Romeo and I support Kimi so all smiles here! We all know what’s upfront, but would be a lark if Raikkonen could get in the mix up there too. A long way to go my friends, but Alfa no doubt shows promise, albeit just a glimmer…


    1. Hi Chris! My brother has an Alfa too! lol

      It’s looking good from what Kimi says and his drive was strong, lots more to come…hopefully!
