October 30, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi have been confirmed as drivers of the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN Formula One team for the 2021 season.
 
The most experienced driver in the history of Formula One (F1), Kimi Räikkönen made his F1 debut in 2001. The 41-year-old Finn, World Champion in 2007, has been an invaluable contributor to the team over the last two seasons.
 
Kimi Räikkönen: “Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN is more than a team to me, it is like a second family. So many of the faces that were around me when I made my Formula One debut in 2001 are still here, and the unique atmosphere of this team is what gives me that extra motivation to keep going in what will be my 19th season in the sport next year. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t believe in the team’s project and in what we feel we can achieve together. This is a team that values hard work over words and this fits well with my style. I am looking forward to next year and hopefully making some steps forward toward the front of the midfield with the team.”
 
The first Italian driver in eight years to serve as a stable presence behind the wheel of a Formula One car, Antonio Giovinazzi has been instrumental in the development of the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN team. Antonio has produced many solid performances this year, establishing himself as one of the best starters, with several positions gained at every race.
 
Antonio Giovinazzi: “Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN has been my home in Formula One for the last two seasons and I am happy this relationship can continue for one more year. The team has put a lot of faith in me, and I have done my best to repay this confidence with hard work and commitment; we have achieved some good results and I feel we have done my part to make the team progress, but the road ahead is still long and there is much more we want to achieve together. There will be a lot of continuity between this season and the next one, so everything we work on between now and the end of the year will already count for next, and we are ready to give it all we have.”
