Antonio Giovinazzi says it’s a “dream come true” to have a full-time drive in the 2019 Formula 1 season.

On Tuesday, Alfa Romeo Sauber confirmed Giovinazzi would drive alongside Kimi Raikkonen for the team in 2019 and Marcus Ericsson would shift to a third driver role.

“I am very motivated and cannot wait to start working towards achieving great results together,” Giovinazzi said.

Antonio Giovinazzi will be the first full-time Italian driver in Formula 1 since Jarno Trulli and Vitantonio Liuzzi after the pair lost their seats at the end of 2011.
