Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur said that the team will announce who will replace Kimi Raikkonen in the 2022 season by the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi.

Raikkonen announced his retirement from Formula 1 through an Instagram post, leading to a string of rumors regarding the driver line-ups for next year, with Vasseur choosing not to address any at the moment.

“I don’t know if it will be next week or the week after,” Vasseur said. “But I think that now we have almost all the cards in our hands and we have to move forward and to take a decision.”

“And in that case, we will be able to do it quickly. I don’t know if it’s before Monza, after Monza, or before Sochi.”
