For you Sergio Marchionne
I say they’re wrong. Charles has shown great maturity, humility and absolute courage. His mental strength is extraordinary (Charles raced on when he lost Jules AND when he lost his father) two events which may have led a weaker person down a different path.
Leclerc has the talent, charisma, fortitude, speed and attitude befitting a proper Ferrari racer. At last a driver Ferrari deserve and missed having in our team!
Ferrari are taking a risk but it’s a risk worthwhile. Charles is a product of OUR academy, he is OUR boy done good. Ferrari are going to protect him at all costs and no way are they going to let him fail. It’s Charles’ future number two who should be worried. 😎
Kimi & Inaki 🙂
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.
