Alfa Romeo: It’s Friday the result doesn’t matter

Sauber drivers report from the first day of the Chinese Grand Prix weekend, Round 3 of the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship, at Shanghai International Circuit.

Kimi Räikkönen: “It’s Friday, so the result doesn’t really matter. We will work as usual tonight and go through everything. We will have a better picture of where we stand after FP3, and see where we will get in qualifying.”

Antonio Giovinazzi: “It’s a shame to have missed the first free practice today. We had a technical problem on my car, but the team set out to resolve the issue quickly and we were able to start FP2 without trouble. The second practice was ok. We did our best to make up for the time we lost in the morning and are now concentrating on doing the best job possible tomorrow.”
