Formula 1 | Vasseur: Imola proved that we are not here by chance


As Formula 1 heads to Miami this weekend, Frédéric Vasseur is confident that Alfa Romeo will fight for big points again as was the case at Imola, where Valtteri Bottas took a convincing fifth place at the finish of the Grand Price.

The French leader, if he is satisfied with the level of performance of his people, however wants to keep his feet on the ground: the C42 is certainly a very fast single-seater but the middle of the pack is tighter than ever.

« We are very happy to be going to Miami on a brand new circuit. There is more and more interest in Formula 1 and we have seen it with the large crowds who have come to every race so far. Adding a new destination like Miami to the calendar will only increase the popularity of the sport and I expect a very spectacular weekend. »

« We approach this race with a lot of confidence. We proved at Imola that our form at the start of the season was not due to chance. We have improved in each event and we are rewarded for our work, but there is no question of The field remains very compact and the slightest change in performance, due to an evolution or to the characteristics of the track, can lead to significant changes in the hierarchy.

« That’s why we continue to extract the maximum from our package. We know we can score big points in every race, but our execution will have to be perfect if we want to beat our rivals. »
