📰:Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari has learnt from its mistakes last year and are "completely fired up" to beat rivals Mercedes in the 2018 Formula One season."The step that we have done in 2017 was incredible," Vettel said. "The way the team has come out with a competitive car at the beginning, the way we have improved both chassis and engine, on all fronts I think it has been outstanding."We have been close for most of the year, not close enough when it mattered, but that's what happened. From that we made our conclusions, we learned our lessons. So I believe that those will help us. We are completely fired up."
And Vettel insists Ferrari now knows what it needs to do in order to pull off a more sustained title charge in 2018."Obviously it was bitter but now we look forward to in 2018. Everybody will be pushing very hard over the winter. I think we have what we need. It all starts again in 2018, so let's see. We had two or three races that turned out to be very costly, for different reasons and, they've [Mercedes] been very, very strong, very consistent.
"In the end we weren't good enough to take it to the last race and take the championship. So, I think we know what we need to do. There are lessons that were obvious, some were a bit more hidden but I'm sure we'll dig deep enough and try to find all of them.
My main fighter. I play this game a lot. The strategy of it has taught me a lot about life. Don't assume anything and be honest with your interactions with people you encounter in the world. True intention is actually quite powerful.
📰| Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel thinks the Italian team is fully under control on what to do to become champion again. After getting very close to it in 2017, some mistakes and bad luck moments made title chances in favor of Mercedes' Hamilton.
Despite losing the title scrap which lasted 18 races (Until the Mexican Gp, when Hamilton clinched his fourth championship), Ferrari made an huge step forward in 2017, revealing itself a true title contender rather than a 3rd team role like in 2016.
💬| Vettel:"The step we kicked in 2017 was phenomenal. We started the season very strongly and during the season, chassis and engine development - and all other areas - were unbelievable.
If we look at the majority of the year, we were very close to Mercedes, but we couldn't be as close as we wanted to be. It happened, we learned something we have lived and learned lessons from all of them." "I believe that everything we learn will help us on a new look, and that's what sets the team up.
Of course there were a sad ending, but we are looking forward to the new season, and everyone is doing their best for the winter, I believe we learned what we need as a team, and everything will start again in 2018. We will se what happens."
