Frederick Wasser: Antonio did a great job

The Italian Grand Prix turned out to be eventful for Alfa Romeo: because of the replacement of the motor, Kimi Raikkonen started from the pit lane, but the team put him the wrong set of tires, so after a few laps the driver had to serve a Stop & Go penalty. Antonio Giovinatsi earned points for the second time this season.

Frederic Wasser, Team Leader: “Earning two points in the home race is a great way to thank everyone for their support this weekend. Antonio performed very well on the home track, keeping his composure under pressure and finished ninth, paying the team for believing in him. I hope this result further motivates him to successfully complete the season and help the team in the fight for positions in the Cup of designers. Unfortunately, this is an unremarkable race for Kimi. In any case, it was difficult to win back after starting from the pit lane, but having made a mistake with the tires, we put an end to his hopes for points. “

Kimi Raikkonen (15th): “A terrible weekend. At first, my mistake was in the qualification, because of which we had to replace the gearbox. Then we decided at the same time to put a new engine and start from the pit lane, but we made a mistake with the tires – because of this fine, the race for me essentially ended. Now I’m waiting for the race in Singapore. It couldn’t be worse. ”

Antonio Giovinazzi (9th): “A successful day for Italy. I want to devote these two points to all typhoid on the track. I am so happy about this result and the fact that Ferrari did something special for our country by winning the race.

It’s great that I – the only Italian rider – was able to earn points in the home race. Starting on Soft and switching to Medium – the start-up worked, but I had to give everything in order to keep Lando Norris behind McLaren. A very difficult race, but our work is rewarded, especially after the failure in the Spa. We must continue in the same spirit and fight in the same way as this weekend. I am happy for the team and for all our fans. ”
