"I think it was quite a good season and, on race pace, I think I made good progress.
"Of course, it helped to watch what Kimi [team-mate Raikkonen] was doing because I think he is one of the best, so I think I have made progress, but still a lot of work to do."
A graduate of the Ferrari Driver Academy, Giovinazzi is aware there will be increased scrutiny in his performances this year after the Scuderia allowed him to remain at Alfa Romeo while placing Mick Schumacher with Haas.
Giovinazzi also has Callum Ilott snapping at his heels after the Briton was named as Ferrari's official Ferrari reserve driver, while another FDA prospect in Robert Shwartzman is expected to be a title contender in F2 this year.
The 27-year-old, however, has no qualms, adding: "I would say I learned quite a lot and I feel more comfortable with the car, with the team and this is something that every young driver says in a career.
"In the first season you feel a little more nervous when everything is new for you but now I am just more comfortable with everything."
Keeping the flat spots warm until suitable young talent is found.
