Antonio Giovinazzi admits that the crash he had during the FP1 of the United States GP “for sure doesn’t help” the chances of his F1 return.

Giovinazzi was behind the wheel of Kevin Magnussen’s Haas car during the opening free practice session of the weekend in Austin.

However, the session ended early for the Italian. Giovinazzi lost control of the car at turn 6, spun, and hit the barrier. He was not able to get going at first but eventually managed to return to the garage.

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner revealed that he was not happy with the accident.

Giovinazzi is considered one of the contenders for the vacant Haas seat for the 2023 season. He acknowledged that the crash will not increase his chances.

“For sure it doesn’t help. But on the other side, I showed already what I could do in Formula 1,” Giovinazzi said.

“I know that it’s not this one lap and a few corners that will end my career. Let’s see what happens, but yeah, just looking like forward now and see what happens.

“Already I did three years in F1. If people want me, it’s not because of today. It’s in the past what I did and what I will do, so let’s see.”
