Words cannot express how proud I am of the Ferrari team, both on the track and at the factory. They built a monster of a car, improved the engine AND kept up the development race. Their never say die attitude and complete devotion to Ferrari may have rubbed some sensitive flakes up the wrong way – but that is why Ferrari are the most loved team on the grid. It was our team who kept Mercedes honest, GIVE THEM THE CREDIT THEY DESERVE.

We go into 2018 with optimism, hope and some level of scepticism. I have complete faith in my team and their talent. If anything, this season has only heightened my sense that we have the wrong driver in Vettel, I don’t believe he is capable of winning a title for us and he most certainly doesn’t deserve a three year contract extension. Kimi has improved significantly compared to his 2016 season. I only hope Kimi’s upwards trajectory continues next season.

Forza Ferrari! And Thank you for 2017. Onwards to 2018.
