Antonio Giovinazzi has trust that his current employers at Scuderia Ferrari will aid his bid to join the Formula 1 grid full time in 2018.

The Italian participated in his first free practice with the Haas F1 Team during the recent round at Silverstone, and he has six more outings planned before the end of the season, while Giovinazzi also competed in two race weekends with the Sauber F1 Team at the beginning of the season, but his aim remains to be on the grid next season.

The twenty-three-year-old acknowledges the difficulty of making it onto the grid with only ten teams, especially as Haas are likely to retain both Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen next season.

“To go in F1 is really hard. There are not many seats,” said Giovinazzi. “There are only 20 seats in the world, so it’s really hard. It’s not like football.

“But it’s just my first season in Ferrari. They are really good. I trust them, so they know what they can do for me. Now it’s just time to focus on what they give me this year with seven FP1s, and then we’ll see what happens next year.

“Anything can happen, so I hope I can find a seat for next year.”
