“And from the other side I want to just again work really well with the team like we worked in together in these last two seasons, and for me I feel like family already [here] because it will be my third season.
“It’s nice to work again together, and with Kimi as well. Like this it would be just more easy to progress [as] a driver as well.”

Giovinazzi says that his progress in 2021 and the opportunity to score points will inevitably depend on Alfa’s own ability to field a more competitive car.
“Hopefully we have a better car and [it] be more easy to be in the points”, he said. “Hopefully we can have a big improvement in terms of performance. And then also in terms of results.
“I think for the team, when you are there in the back, it’s not easy. I always try to push my guys, the team, to do always well.
“I think in the end we did quite well – I always see the guys quite motivated.
“Of course when you score points, it’s always in the next race you feel that the motivation is much higher, but I cannot complain with my guys, with my team, because they always push quite hard and it’s nice to see in this difficult season.”
