Ferrari don't seem to have played a role in Giovinazzi's contract extension

Frederic Vasseur enters the 2021 season with the well-known faces of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi. Alfa Romeo's team boss has responded to the contract renewals and has great confidence in both drivers.

"Kimi is a driver who needs no introduction: his talent has been clear to everyone since 2001 and I still see the passion and motivation in him every time I see him at work. He can be trusted to deliver 100% of what the car can produce and he is a true leader for the people working around him," Vasseur praises his 41 year old driver. 

Giovinazzi earned his own contract

Next to Raikkonen, Giovinazzi occupies the other seat for the third year in a row. The Ferrari-junior has left a good impression. "Antonio finished last year’s campaign strongly and he picked up where he left off and kept improving throughout 2020. From the track to the engineering briefings, Antonio has played a crucial role for our team."

Vasseur emphasises that Alfa Romeo didn't opt to keep Giovinazzi due to pressure from Ferrari. "He has thoroughly deserved a new contract for 2021."
