Alfa Romeo prestigious in the USA

Team principal Frédéric Vasseur said in the Alfa preview“We approach the race in Austin with one objective in mind – getting back into the points. We scored in Russia and we went within two corners of doing the same in Turkey."

"We are really keen to do well here in the US, we know the allure of the Alfa Romeo brand here in the States and what it would mean for all the fans to have a strong race here.”

Raikkonen returns to hallowed ground

“I have some good memories of COTA", begins Alfa driver Raikkonen. "Of course, it was the place where I scored my last win so it’s a nice thing to look back to, but once I get into the car that doesn’t matter.

Both Raikkonen and teammate Antonio Giovinazzi will need to put their best foot forward after narrowly missing out on points in Turkey.
