Vettel wants to keep Monza on the F1 calendar


Sebastian Vettel, who finished second at the Monza, and he continues to have a strong debut season with Ferrari.

Following the race, four-time world champion says the sport must do all it can to keep the so-called ‘temple of speed’ on the calendar.

The German made a perfect start and got better from there. Also he taking benefit of Raikkonen’s terrible start, yet wasn’t able to match the pace of Hamilton who led from start to finish.

“To sum it up it is fairly simple, it is the best second place I ever had,” said Vettel, whose name was chanted by the raucous tifosi when he stepped out on to the rostrum.

“The emotions on the podium is incredible and if we take this away from the calendar for any s***** money reasons I think you are basically ripping our hearts out.

“We are here, we are racing and this makes it so much more worthwhile. It is what we’re here for. You stand on the grid, you look to the left, you look to the right, people are just happy to be part of it and it makes our day.”

The Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who has already spoken of his desire for Monza’s long affiliation with Formula One to continue, caused mayhem in the paddock when he arrived to meet Ecclestone shortly before the race.
