Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN Formula One Team’s Kimi Raikkonen says he had a great summer break with his family and is looking forward to getting back on track this weekend at the Spa Feancorchamps circuit for the Belgian Grand Prix.

The Iceman believes that the team will be in a similar situation to before the Summer break and speaking ahead of the race Kimi said:

 I enjoyed the time off: spending this much time with the family is not something we do often so I made sure to make the most of it. Now, though, the holidays feel already in the past and I am looking forward to racing again: Spa is the perfect place to come back, it’s a nice track where you get some good racing and Sundays can be unpredictable. The situation on track will be similar to before the summer: we need to be sharp and get the most out of our car and the circumstances and we can bring home a good result.”

Antonio Giovinazzi is also excited to be back racing this weekend saying:

I was able to spend a few weeks with family and friends, which is always a nice thing to do when you have such a busy calendar. The summer break was a good chance to train a little but mostly recover, physically and mentally, from the first seven months of the season: it was a nice break and I feel good, but I can’t wait to be back in the car. Spa is an epic track, one where you feel the driver can make a massive difference, and I want to start the second part of the season in the best possible way. We are motivated to set the tone right from the beginning of the run-up to the end of the year

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal of Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN:

“The team returns to action with the determination to continue our work and bring home the results we deserve. The motivation levels are high, both for this season and the next one, and we know we have an opportunity to fight for the points at each track for the remainder of the year. We need to make sure we maximise all opportunities to add points to our tally and fight for a better position in the championship: there are plenty of chances to turn this around, starting with this triple-header, and we’re confident we can be in the mix already here in Belgium.”
