Antonio Giovinazzi - Bio:

Antonio Giovinazzi is a rarity in F1 these days, the only Italian on the grid despite Italy’s long love affair with Formula 1, but Giovinazzi’s road to a full time race seat at Alfa Romeo Racing has been winding.

A strong 2016 GP2 campaign saw him finish runner up to Pierre Gasly by just 8 points, but as always in F1, just having speed was not enough. Sauber called Giovinazzi up to replaced the injured Pascal Wehrlein for the first two rounds of the 2017 F1 Season but Giovinazzi left a mixed impression, a solid performance in Melbourne was contrasted with a disaster weekend in China.

2018 would see Giovinazzi continue to work as Ferrari reserve after losing out on a potential Sauber seat.

With Leclerc getting the call up to Ferrari and Marcus Ericsson leaving F1 the Alfa Romeo Racing team had a seat to fill and Giovinazzi was there to fill it.

Antonio Giovinazzi will be up against the famed veteran Kimi Raikkonen in 2019 but his experience with Ferrari will hopefully mean better results than he managed in 2017.
