Giovinazzi concedes he has "a lot of things to improve"

Giovinazzi concedes he has "a lot of things to improve"

Antonio Giovinazzi believes he has "a lot of things to improve on" ahead of his third year with Alfa Romeo.

Giovinazzi ended the 2020 season 17th in the standings and tied with his veteran team-mate Kimi Raikkonen on four points, 10 fewer than the Italian scored in his rookie year.

While a sub-par power unit from supplier Ferrari hampered the Scuderia and its customers Haas and Alfa Romeo last year, Giovinazzi is aware he has plenty to work on personally ahead of the new season.

"There are still a lot of things to improve and I will work out what I want to do for this season, and I will try to improve myself," said the Italian.

"I think I have improved on many points, mostly in the race because it was one of my negative points in 2019, lap one, where I was not great.

"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.
