Alfa Romeo has announced that it will stay with Antonio Giovinazzi for the 2020 season. There was some initial discussion about Nico Hulkenberg possibly going to Alf but I suspect keeping Ferrari’s junior driver is exactly how this was always going to unfold.
Alfa Romeo’s announcement:
Alfa Romeo Racing will extend its relationship with Antonio Giovinazzi into the 2020 Formula 1 World Championship.
Fred Vasseur, Team Principal of Alfa Romeo Racing and CEO of Sauber Motorsport AG:
“Antonio has done really well this year. The way he has integrated into the team and has consistently improved throughout his first full season in the sport are very promising and we cannot wait to unlock his full potential as we continue to work together”.
“I am very happy to be staying with the team for 2020. I am grateful for the incredible level of support I received in my first full season in Formula One: everyone in the team has stuck by my side since I joined and I am really looking forward to continuing our journey together.”
