“It has been a while since I’ve been on top step and obviously the first time with Ferrari. I’m speechless. Vettel said during the podium interview.
I’m happy and proud of today. We beat them fair and square and it is a special day – that is why I am emotional.”
“Last year was not a good year for me, it was a great car but I struggled to extract performance from it. This car suits me very well.
“It was a big change last year but the team welcomed me from the very first day. When the gate opened at Maranello it was like a dream come true. The last time I was there I watched Michael Schumacher over the fence and now I’m driving that red car.” The German added
“A beautfiul day,” Ferrari’s James Allison admits, as the rest of crew scream in delight against the parc ferme fencing.
