“Learn from those mistakes, and that’s what I did”- Alfa Romeo youngster Antonio Giovinazzi explains the lesson he received in Belgium.
Antonio Giovinazzi showed his progress as a driver in 2020, and that is why Ferrari gave him another year with Alfa Romeo to boost his potential further.
“Overall, I am delighted with the progress I have made during the season and especially compared to 2019. Of course, I am still young and have a lot to improve.”
“Next season I want to take the next step, and hopefully we have a better car to fight more at the front,” Giovinazzi told Crash.net in an interview.
Giovinazzi claims that one of the biggest turnarounds in his career came in 2019 Belgian Grand Prix, where he crashed into barriers while losing control at a turn.
Before the crash, the race would have been a perfect day for Giovinazzi, as he was cruising past through the race to receive his first F1 career points.
“Of course, it was not the best race. Well, it was one of my best races up to that point. The important thing is not to not do those things, but to learn from those mistakes and that’s what I did.”
It boosted confidence
Giovinazzi as claimed above that he quickly learnt from his mistake and moved on from that event because the next race was in Monza, in his own country and home of Ferrari, from where he graduated.
“I put that race behind me straight away, especially because after Spa I had a crucial weekend with a home race at Monza.” The Italian race driver then went onto secure his first points in Monza.
“After that moment, your confidence goes up a lot because the result is so good. After that, it all goes a lot easier,” he concluded.
