Frederic Vasseur feels Alfa Romeo must make the most of chaotic Formula 1 races

Alfa Romeo team boss Frederic Vasseur has said that the team must make the most of opportunities if they are to improve on their place in the standings.

The year started so strongly for the team, scoring points in the first four races and secured eight top-ten finishes before the summer break.

Both drivers were in good positions in both Azerbaijan and Germany but due to penalties were forced to finish lower down on the grid as a result.

"The season could have been completely different, but it's true for all 10 teams, Vasseur said to Autosport.

"We missed two big opportunities, one in Baku when Antonio had to start from the back and Kimi from the pitlane. "In Hockenheim, we were penalised. "It would have been a completely different championship.

"I think we had during the season three chaotic races: Baku, Hockenheim and Brazil.

"It makes no sense to lead the group if 100% of the cars finish the race because you score the points for seventh and eighth, or seventh and 10th."
