Today, at the request of Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene, Sebastian Vettel came to Maranello to visit the Gestione Sportiva.
“The purpose of the tour was to allow the four time World Champion to visit all the departments and to get better acquainted with everyone he will be working with this season,” said the team.
Sebastian is the fifth driver to come to Maranello having already won world titles elsewhere, just as did Schumacher, Juan Manuel Fangio, Fernando Alonso and Alain Prost. The first two of these managed to add to their tally of titles during their time with Scuderia Ferrari.
When, on 13th March, Sebastian Vettel will settle into the cockpit of his car for the first free practice session of the 2015 season, he will become the fifth German to have officially driven a Ferrari Formula 1 car. The previous one was the great Michael Schumacher, who drove 180 Grands Prix for the Scuderia, winning 72 of them and taking five world titles.
The 2015 Ferrari F1 challenger will be launched on January 30, just two days before the start of the Jerez test.
