Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne says his team’s success in the Singapore Grand Prix proves they are on the way back to being a dominant force in Formula One.
“This was a major victory on a difficult circuit and I’d like to dedicate it to all our tifosi [fans] who have been so steadfast in their affection and support.”
“On behalf of everyone in Ferrari, I promise them this race is not just a one-off but a huge step forward on our road back to staying at the top and hearing the Italian national anthem played a lot more often.”
“Sebastian Vettel drove like a real champion today,” Marchionne added, “and everyone on the team, both on the track and back home in Maranello, did an absolutely perfect job.”
“I’m also delighted for Kimi Raikkonen. It is wonderful to see him back on the podium too. It has been too long since two Ferrari drivers were in the first three across the line.”
