‘Get well Niko’, F1 team Alfa Romeo was spotted with this banner ahead of the Styrian Grand Prix qualifying; the identity of the person is unknown.
The internet really went curious to know for whom the Alfa Romeo’s team lined up with a banner, on which it was written ‘Get well Niko’, for long people were puzzled for whom this banner was dedicated.
After a while, it was claimed that Alfa Romeo took out this banner to show support to a team member in the racing team, who apparently met with an accident a few days ago.

Meanwhile, it is also possible that the message could be for Rangers’ star Niko Katic, who faced a bad injury during the same timeline mentioned above.
However, that possibility is unlikely. On the other hand, even the Italian team hasn’t officially revealed anything. So till then, one can only speculate.
Alfa Romeo in Qualifying
Alfa Romeo had a tough day in the qualifying as they finished really low in the podium and one of the cars also took damage on the grid. Antonio Giovinazzi was the driver whose car crashed but managed to continue the race for a while, before parking it on sideways after the decree passed on the track.
Because of it, he was knocked out in the Q1 with the 19th position on the Grid. On the other hand, Kimi Raikkonen also had to see an early exit on the 17th spot.
There isn’t much left for Alfa Romeo on the race day, managing in the top 10 on Sunday would be a success for them.
