Alfa Romeo not sure if Raikkonen staying in 2022

Alfa Romeo’s engineering boss isn’t sure if 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen will continue to race for the Swiss based Formula 1 team beyond 2021. Raikkonen, 41, is the oldest and most experienced driver on the grid, and until 2021 generally had the edge over his teammate Antonio Giovinazzi. It has triggered rumours that Raikkonen may be replaced for 2022 with Mick Schumacher, who like Giovinazzi is another prominent Ferrari academy driver. When asked if Raikkonen is staying in 2022, Alfa Romeo engineering chief Xevi Pujolar admitted: “I don’t know what his plans are and I cannot speak for him. When asked what Raikkonen’s main problem is in qualifying, Pujolar says the former McLaren and Ferrari driver is struggling to “get the tyres ready for a fast lap”.
