Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN had a pretty normal Friday at the Spa Francorchamps ahead of Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix as Formula One returns following the summer break. Kimi Raikkonen spun during the opening session and hit the pitwall entrance but speaking following the action the Iceman said:

“It was a better day than we thought: it looked like FP2 would be a wet session, but then it was dry and we could run. We made a step forward throughout the day but there’s still work to be done. Let’s see what weather we get in qualifying, how we can improve overnight and find out how well we do tomorrow. In mixed conditions, everything can happen.”

Antonio Giovinazzi commented on his day saying:

“We had a smooth and positive day, a good way to come back from the summer break. I am happy with the work we did: we only did a few laps on high fuel, so we don’t have a lot of data for Sunday, but we have tomorrow still – and we have to take the weather into account. We were expecting rain this afternoon, but we ran in the dry instead. We’ll see what we get tomorrow: the target is to get to Q2 and see what we can do from there.”
