Alfa Romeo need to improve small details for 2020

Alfa Romeo boss Frederic Vasseur says that his team need to improve "small details" for next season if they are to break into the top end of the midfield.

The Italian team have had a tough time since the summer break, scoring just three points, all courtesy of the improved Antonio Giovinazzi, with Kimi Raikkonen without a top ten finish since the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Alfa Romeo sit eighth in the constructors' standings, and have often been just off the pace of the likes of Racing Point and Toro Rosso this season, and Vasseur is targeting improvements for next season.

He said during Friday's press conference at Suzuka: “It’s small things and small details honestly. If you compare with Sochi that we were, with Antonio, we were P13 in Quali but we were two tenths off compared to P7 in Q2 and it’s very, very tight and for small details sometimes you can be completely out of the classification, but we have to take care when you are doing the analysis.

“But it’s true also that we made too many mistakes over the last three or four weekends – teams, drivers, everyone in the same basket – but at the end of the day we have to wake up a little bit and to come back to the pace and top score points in the last four events.”
