Alfa Romeo report from day one of the Italian Grand Prix weekend, Round 14 of the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship, at Monza.
Alfa Romeo Racing C38 (Chassis 04/Ferrari)
FP1: 20th / no time (4 laps) — FP2: 14th / 1:22.523 (35 laps)
“Not a great start with my crash in FP1 but to be honest we didn’t really lose precious time as the mixed conditions continued and therefore no one could do any proper work. Same story in the afternoon, so even if the car felt good and we put in some good lap times we have to wait until tomorrow to see where exactly we are.”
Alfa Romeo Racing C38 (Chassis 02/Ferrari)
FP1: 11th / 1:32.848 (22 laps) — FP2: 17th / 1:23.065 (35 laps)
“The conditions weren’t ideal today: the rain made it a bit tricky but in the end it’s the same for everybody and it was good to do some laps in the wet. It’ll be interesting to see what the weather does tomorrow and on Sunday, but our focus won’t change: we just need to work hard to get where we want. Qualifying will be tight once again. We will push to find the best setup tonight and to get a good result in qualifying.”
