Alfa Romeo does not expect miracles: ''Have to move forward step by step''

The Formula 1 circus arrived in Belgium which means that we are going to race at the legendary circuiti of Spa-Francorchamps. Alfa Romeo hasn't really been competitive from the start of the season, but is there any chance of a good resuult on the favourite circuit of Kimi Raikkonen?

Four times Raikkonen has already won at Spa-Francorchamps. The Finn won for the first time in 2004 for McLaren, did so again in 2005 and also won for Ferrari in 2007 and 2009. Since then Raikkonen has never been able to win at Spa and for Alfa Romeo that also seems to be a utopia. 

Raikkonen won four times already

''The week off gave us some time to regroup and get ready for the next Triple Header. We have worked hard to make progress, but you don't just take steps in this sport. We have to be realistic and move forward step by step'', is the team boss of Alfa Romeo in the team preview.

Kimi doesn't expect miracles on his favourite track either. ''Spa is a favourite track for me, but past results don't count in Formula 1," said the Finn. ''As a small child I saw Michael Schumacher perform great here and on Friday I can't help thinking about that. Spa is a great track with lots of challenges," added his teammate Antonio Giovinazzi.
