Räikkönen was 11th in the race, which naturally dropped the Finn, as points are awarded to the top ten.
– But in the end we didn’t get anything out of it. It’s a pity, Räikkönen said after the race about his lap.
– The car felt good, but at the moment we are still a little exhausted to get to the points. Hopefully we will move forward again next week, Räikkönen said in an Alfa Romeo press release.
Also team manager Frédéric Vasseur regretted that the score remained a dream.
– Kimi drove an amazing first couple of laps. Naturally, it’s a sign of development that Kimi overtook Ferrari and fought Red Bull. Unfortunately, our best attempt was not enough to get points. But we can be confident about the last races of the season. If we continue down this path, we can be steadily fighting for the top 10 rankings.
