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.
““Look at where Ferrari was after 2014. He [Arrivabene] is the key person for changing that, so I think he is the right man”
– Vettel really ought to keep his opinions about Ferrari in 2014 to himself, they stopped working on that car that year early on (April onwards) to focus on 2015. Domenicali and Mattiacci deserve credit for turning Ferrari’s hybrid era around. Vettel wasn’t there, he really should stop acting like he (that is what is implied here) saved Ferrari, that narrative isn’t going to wash with anyone.
Vettel fans jumping all over the Ferrari team. Please let me remind you Vettel hasn’t exactly been on form. Parts failing have absolutely nothing to do with human error. The Ferrari team have put everything in, week in week out even when the driver decides to play Mario Kart.
Truth be told Hamilton deserves this title, he has been the better driver.
