Marchionne: “Vettel has to drive with more confidence and calm”


Ferrari held its traditional Christmas meal with the
the press in Maranello, an act that usually served to take stock of the year. In this
aspect, Sergio Marchionne has acknowledged that Ferrari has been below the state
level expected
, but has also released a warning to Sebastian Vettel in the wake of his
performance and attitude during the last few months in 2016, in which the German
he was the protagonist for their discrete results and by the radio messages
derogatory and out of line
that took place in the GP of Mexico and
recurrent when it comes into contact with the bent.

Within the discourse of Marchionne,
responsible of Ferrari has recognized the problems that the team has been the to
to be competitive
, the entire time that the Italian formation has not been able to spend the
third place in the Constructors’. All in all, it has also
sent a message to their drivers: “we Keep an eye on other riders to
2018. Vettel we have to give him a winning car, otherwise it is useless
discuss about your future. He wants to win with us, but you have to drive
with more confidence and calm, you must fly less agitated
. He should think about winning
on the track, without engaging in personal battles”.

in The end, the renewal of the contract of Vettel is on top of the table and is an element that Marchionne has to study, oblivious to the possibilities that the market offers, especially in the past few days with the withdrawal of Nico Rosberg: “I have Not spoken about extending the contract of Sebastian Vettel because it is too soon to do so. You must first be comfortable with the car next year. What Vettel and Mercedes? Lauda speaks all over the world, but the truth is that in 2017 Vettel is with us. I have to give stability to the team and the goal is to give our drivers a car great“.
