The results of the qualification in Melbourne for Alfa Romeo turned out to be contradictory – Kimi Raikkonen reached the final and showed the ninth time, while Antonio Giovinazzi starts the 14th. The team is confident that the speed of the car will allow you to earn your first points in tomorrow’s race.

Frederick Vasser, Team Leader: “Overall, the qualifications went well. Antonio was very strong in the first part, and Kimi – in the second. Our pace is encouraging, we are confident that we can claim a good result in the race.

The team is optimistic and working smoothly. We will attack in order to earn our first points in the season tomorrow. ”

Kimi Raikkonen (9th): “Am I pleased? Yes and no. I’m a little disappointed, because I think that the car allowed to count on a higher place at the start, but I was not able to gather a circle together. Now it is important to pass without incident the first two turns in the race, and then we’ll see what we can do. “

Antonio Giovinazzi (14th): “Qualification went well. I drove a pretty good lap in the first part. In my second warm-up lap, it turned out not very good – a small mistake led to a loss of time, which affects the starting position with so dense results.

We have a fast car and a good racing pace, tomorrow there will be an opportunity to compete for points. The strategy is important because it is difficult to overtake on this route. I will do everything to bring the team a good result. ”
