F1 – BIG DECEPTION FOR ALFA ROMEO IN AUSTIN – Sport Auto

Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Räikkönen were both eliminated in Q2 in Austin, while they were hoping for good results.

Antonio Giovinazzi will start in 16th place. He was hoping for a much better result after a good try and he thinks the race will be tough.

"We were looking forward to a lot better today, especially after a last practice session where we looked pretty good, but in the end I missed Q2 very little, less than a tenth, Explains Giovinazzi. "With this starting position, the race will be difficult. "

"We must try to understand how to maximize our racing pace, believe in ourselves, and see where it will take us. "

Räikkönen made a mistake

Kimi Räikkönen ranked 17th. He made a mistake blocking a wheel and he thinks that's what deprived him of the Q2.

"It's disappointing to be eliminated in Q1 after a good session in the morning," admits the Finn. "I made a mistake in corner 12 braking, I blocked a wheel and it made me lose at least three tenths (and without that) I could have won three or four places and would have allowed me to enter Q2. "

"That's about all, without the mistake, I'll be easily passed. We have a lot of work to find this place but we will do our best. "
