In what could have been the first points of Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN’s season, it turned into a calamity. Kimi Räikkönen collided with teammate Antonio Giovinazzi at the end of the opening lap, not only ending his race but also bringing out the safety car.

Giovinazzi luckily had no damage from the collision and managed to bring the car home in twelfth, the same position he started in.

It is another race where Alfa Romeo could have had a points finish, but Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN Team Principal Frédéric Vasseur believes the team are still missing something to break into the top ten.

“It was a mixed Sunday for us: on the one hand, we lost one car through contact between team-mates, which is one of the worst things that can happen, in a sporting sense, to a team; on the other hand, Antonio did a really good job in the remaining car, keeping behind most of our direct rivals and finishing just outside the points.” Said Vasseur.

We keep showing how competitive the car can be in the race, but we still miss something to be in the top ten in normal circumstances: our work doesn’t stop and we will keep pushing to get there consistently.
