Antonio Giovinazzi says he is no closer to knowing his future, as Alfa Romeo are yet to confirm who will take the final place on the Formula 1 grid for 2022.
“It’s not ideal to come [to] the track, that you don’t know what you will do next year and what will happen, but it’s like this and hopefully we can know bad or good news soon,” Giovinazzi continued. “So at least we know what will happen then and it will be better for everyone in the team.”
Giovinazzi said the lack of clarity over his future was “not easy” but there’s “nothing that I can do” besides wait for team principal Frederic Vasseur to make his decision.
“The only thing I can do is drive the car, bring the results and then it’s not my decision. So it’s more for Fred than for me.”
Giovinazzi has regularly beaten his world champion team mate Kimi Raikkonen in qualifying this year but says that’s “not my only goal” and he needs better results from the races. “I’m happy that it’s been quite good in qualifying, but something that we miss is points.
“If we’re looking in also the race result with Kimi, we are in front, but we have less points and this is not good. This is what I want, just score more points from here to Abu Dhabi is the main goal for now.”
Repeated finishes just outside the top 10 frustrated him “a lot,” he said. “To race to P11 is not great. Istanbul we were just one corner behind that top 10, Austin it was a little bit more difficult, but I guess hopefully this time we can be in the points. That is what we need to do.”
