Alfa Romeo votes for continuity, therefore the racers also stay. This means, that the young Italian Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi will be at the grid next year as well!
Consequently, the guesses according to which Mick Schumacher would race with Alfa Romeo remain only rumors;; the ‘old chap’ stays as well. This must have come as a relief for Kimi Raikkönen’s fans. Iceman was very ICY concerning his contract extension:
‘Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN is more than a racing team, it is my second family. When I started my F1 career back in 2001 at Sauber, many had already been here and the atmosphere here is a great element of motivation for me. I am happy to start my 19th year here and I strongly believe in our cooperation. Here facts and actions matter more than words, and this is perfectly suitable to my working morale. I am here because I believe in this is project and in the possibility that we can make leaps forward. IO cannot wait for the next season to prove everything!’ – stated Raikkönen.
Antonio Giovinazzi is also very happy about the possibility to prove himself next season:
‘During the last two years this team was my second home and I am happy about our future cooperation. Alfa believed in me and I have always done my best to show my worthiness by means of my results. We have achieved great results together and I was part of our development as well. I truly hope that this not the end of our development and there is a lot to be done.’ – added Giovinazzi his opinion.
