Italian official says Alfa Romeo penalised Giovinazzi

Another Italian official has blasted Alfa Romeo for “penalising” its own Formula 1 driver in Mexico. As the Sauber-run outfit counts down the days before announcing Valtteri Bottas’ teammate for 2022, Italian Giovinazzi admitted he was angry with his incomprehensible race strategy last Sunday. “We had a good talk with Antonio after the race,” said chief engineer Xevi Pujolar. Lapo Elkann, the brother of Fiat chairman John Elkann, lashed out at Alfa Romeo for being a team that “harms its own driver”, which he said was “sad and maddening”. If Giovinazzi is now ousted, Italy would be without a single F1 driver on the grid.
