Can Seb succeed where Fernando failed?
Witnessing the series of sackings that has taken place at Ferrari lately has left me questioning their thought processes.
I am 18 years old, and growing up watching Formula 1 in the early 2000s I saw Ferrari as the kings of efficiency and car design. As a dogged Juan Pablo Montoya fan at the time, it would have been a rare pleasure to witness anything less than perfection from the legendary scarlet team.
Some ten years on from the end of that famous period, look at Ferrari now. They’re a mess. They seem to think that throwing a new team together every 12 months will eventually amount to success. And then they try to pin the blame on individuals when it doesn’t work.
Sebastian Vettel, following in the footsteps of Michael Schumacher, has a task on his hands to pull this team together and inject positive energy and common sense. But if he can achieve what Alonso couldn’t, and spearheads Ferrari’s return to the front of F1, legendary Scuderia status awaits. Jamie Carrington
