Canada GP Review - 10 Jun 19

2019 FIA Formula One Pirelli Grand Prix du Canada – Race – Sunday

Weather: sunny, 28.4-30.9°C air, 49.5.-52.6°C track

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Racing and CEO Sauber Motorsport AG: “After being very close to getting into Q3 yesterday, we were convinced we could have a good race performance. However, an unscheduled stop for Kimi due to a visor strip – not his own, this time – in his brake duct and Antonio suffering contact in lap one prevented us from competing against the rest of the midfield. We are working hard to understand the performance of the tyres and we’ll make the most of the developments we have lined up for the next few races. I am confident we can recover the speed we showed earlier in the season and get back in the fight for points."

Kimi Räikkönen  (car number 7):

Alfa Romeo Racing C38 (Chassis 03/Ferrari)

Result: 15th

Fastest lap: 1:15.442

Tyres: New Medium (6 laps) - New Hard (52 laps) - New Soft (11 laps)

"Not an easy weekend, not an easy race, as we didn’t have the speed to fight for position. Some laps it felt better, then there were laps where we struggled to find grip. We have work to do and we also will get new parts and this should help us to get back into the fight for points."

Antonio Giovinazzi  (car number 99):

Alfa Romeo Racing C38 (Chassis 04/Ferrari)

Result: 13th

Fastest lap: 1:16.365

Tyres: New Hard (33 laps) - New Medium (36 laps)

"Finishing in P13 is quite a disappointment, especially since we thought we had the speed to make up some places in the race. The pace wasn’t really there, easy as that. We need to find a solution because we appear to lose our competitiveness on Sunday and that is really hurting us."
