Raikkonen may soon break one of Schumacher’s records

In Brazil, where Kimi Raikkonen took 4th place, and Antonio Giovinazzi – 5th, Alfa Romeo earned 22 points. In Sao Paulo, only Red Bull Racing racers brought their team more – 25 points.

The previous time, both cars of the Swiss team finished in the top five more than ten years ago: in 2009, Robert Kubica was the fourth in the Spa, and his BMW Sauber partner Nick Heidfeld was fifth.

By the way, Kimi won that race, and last weekend he spent his 312nd Grand Prix and earned points for the 213rd time in his career. True, before this there were seven stages in a row, when the Finnish racer Alfa Romeo finished outside the top ten – he did not have such a long “inconclusive” series for all the years of speaking in Formula 1.

Kimi Raikkonen has a contract with the team from Hinwil for another season, and if he manages to earn points in eight more races, which is quite realistic, then by this indicator he will be equal to the record of Michael Schumacher.

Alfa Romeo spends the season of 2019 unevenly, but it seems that the team has overcome the problem period, and if it successfully performs in Abu Dhabi, it will be able to argue with Racing Point for the 7th place in the Cup of designers. After 20 stages, the Swiss team has 57 points, while Racing Point has 10 more points.
