Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto remains hopeful that their reserve driver will retain his place at Alfa Romeo.
Why it matters: The second place at Alfa Romeo is the only place available in F1 for 2022 and Antonio Giovinazzi is one of the contenders for that seat.
- Binotto continues to deny that Ferrari could interfere in Alfa Romeo’s driver decision.
- Other drivers who could get a spot at Alfa Romeo are Nyck de Vries and Guanyu Zhou.
What they had to say:
- “It’s clear as well that Antonio, for us, is our reserve driver, he’s an Italian driver, he’s part of the Ferrari family, he’s a Ferrari driver. So for us it will be great to have him still driving next year. We believe that he is a good driver and he deserves to have a seat next year.
- “But as I said, we cannot influence the team decision. As power unit supplier, obviously I think we’re always evaluating the collaboration, the partnership with the team, and the driver choice is part of the evaluation.”
