I'm a little saddened by the Giovinazzi news. I'm not going to say I'm surprised, but I was hoping they would give him one more season in the new car, with the upgraded Ferrari engine. But It's difficult to pass up on the money, I suppose.
I agree, would have liked for GIO to stay, I think all seats are taken for 2022?
I often think that the young guys are replaced too soon, but I guess that's how things are in any field of work nowadays, you need to master your trade from day 1.
Yes, all are taken for 2022. I think he will still test for Ferrari though. Maybe in 2023 he can find a drive.
As far as letting him go, from a business standpoint, I get it. I heard Zhou is bringing in somewhere around 30 mil (don't quote me though... I am not sure how accurate that figure is). But as far as talent, Sure Gio is no Verstappen or Hamilton, but few are. I don't think Ham or Ver could have won any races in that C40. Probably not even scored a podium. Maybe a top 5 once or twice, that's it. But it is what it is.
I wish Antonio much success in the future in whatever his next venture is.
