Raikkonen’s team-mate remains Antonio Giovinazzi. The Italian has many advocates in the FIAT group. It is also clear: Mick Schumacher will most likely start for the Haas team after 2021. And: Because Nikita Mazepin is to become his teammate, Schumi junior will be the only one of the three Ferrari juniors who will advance from Formula 2 to Formula 1. Callum Ilott could be withdrawn into the GT program or switch to Formula E, Robert Shwartzman will compete in Formula 2 for a second year.
Alfa Romeo team boss Frédéric Vasseur on the 2021 driver selection: “I am very happy that we can continue to work with Kimi and Antonio. I see a Raikkonen who is still inspired by passion. We can always rely on him one hundred percent, it was extremely important to me that he keep going. Antonio has shown an increase in performance and deserves his place. “
