Alfa Romeo head of trackside engineering Xevi Pujolar believes that the team needs to make “one more step” to close the gap with the midfield leaders.

After a P9 finish in the Constructors’ Championship in 2021, Alfa Romeo ended the 2022 campaign in 6th place. The Hinwil-based outfit scored 42 points more this year compared to 2021.

However, Alfa Romeo had to deal with reliability issues throughout the season. Pujolar believes that Alfa Romeo needs “one more step” to be at the same level as the quickest midfield teams.

“I think they’re still a step ahead,” he said.

“What we have achieved by having more margin to Aston Martin, but still to be the level of Alpine or McLaren, we will need one more step and that’s what we will be working on next year.

“Now we are consolidating this P6 and looking to make one step more. There were a few areas where our performance was good in the last few races.

“But still the areas that we need to improve in the races; starts, lap one, and many of these areas, you’ll see some margin – which is where we will need to be much better prepared.”
