Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN move onto the start of the triple header beginning this weekend in France, on the back of two point scoring races in a row.
The team are finally beginning to show some form and it arguably couldn’t have come at a better time, especially with the other midfield teams making further improvements.
Antonio Giovinazzi scored the team’s first point of the season at the sixth time of asking in the Monaco Grand Prix, while Kimi Räikkönen did likewise in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix two weeks ago. It means Alfa Romeo currently sit eighth in the Constructors’ Championship heading to the Circuit Paul Ricard this weekend.
Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal of Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN and CEO of Sauber Motorsport, is hoping that the French Grand Prix will finally give the team a platform to show the real pace of their C41-Ferrari, something that wasn’t possible at the chaotic race in Baku last time out.
“We travel to France with the determination to continue our points-scoring streak for a third race in a row,” said Vasseur. “We have finally started to see the results coming from all our good work and we know there is a lot more potential to come from the team, but we also know that putting together an issue-free weekend is crucial to achieve these objectives.
“The disrupted qualifying and eventful race in Baku somewhat masked the real pace of our car: hopefully France is where we really show all we can do.”
