Italy hails Vettel-Alonso exchange ‘masterpiece’

13 races and 4 victories into Sebastian Vettel’s first year in red, the passionate, fickle and partisan Italian press could not be happier.

“When you consider that he earns less,” La Repubblica said after the Singapore grand prix, “the exchange of Alonso for Vettel was a masterpiece.”

The gushing praise comes after Vettel’s dominant and unexpected third win of the season in Singapore.

“If fate and symbols mean something,” said La Gazzetta dello Sport, “it has to be said now that Vettel has won three times just like his idol Michael Schumacher at Ferrari in 1996.”

And La Stampa said: “Now Ferrari can dream of the impossible.

“Vettel never loses his head, and his victory is a personal masterpiece as well as a success of the entire team.”

Former Ferrari team boss Cesare Fiorio, however, is urging for calm and realism.

“It is always permissible to dream,” he told Rai Radio 1, “but also to keep feet on the ground.

“Singapore was the most favourable circuit for Ferrari of all the ones to come, but perhaps as Japan follows so quickly it means Mercedes has little time to solve its problems.”

But Fiorio, who led Ferrari in the pre-Jean Todt era, also has high praise for the resurgent Maranello team.

“The engineers and designers have developed the car at an incredible speed, recovering a gap that seemed hopeless and putting Ferrari at a level close to Mercedes,” he added. (GMM)

    Massa? He didnt let bottas pass in silverstone and it cost a podium for williams. You may think his ego is too big but the only driver in F1 that can do it better with a same car is Hamilton. And remember…vettel is worse than Ricciardo

  • Victor Miguel Madariaga Canour

    With a car that is 1-2 seconds per lap faster all is possible. Remember Silverstone 2014 Alonso vs Vettel or in Bahrein this year the mistakes he made

  • dima-f1

    Alonso in the first Ferrari season won 5 times and fought for the сhampionship until the last race, Vettel has only 3 victories and takes 3 place in the сhampionship

  • What-Gives?

    Even Massa said that as soon as Alonso came in Ferrari everything changed for the worst! So when everyone talks what control freak he is and how he wants the whole team to run behind of him and him dictating everything you wonder then why he cant become a champion anymore! His ego is to big for his own good!

  • What-Gives?

    Really he has no skills to overtake what formula 1 have you watched? Or did you forget the last race in Brazil where he got the last championship from last place to the 6th that’s what he needed to be champion! To me your opinion is more like sour grape and not based in the reality!

    What a short sighted article.

    ALONSO WAS DISASTER AND CRY BABY…IT IS SO NICE TO SEE HIM AT THE BACK OF THE PACK AND DROPPING OUT OF SO MANY RACES…HE MAY COME BACK,BUT I HOPE IT IS A LONG TIME FROM NOW.

  • Formula Future

    right about the math but Vettel does have the skills to overtake.

  • Victor Miguel Madariaga Canour

    3 victorys not 4…
    And there exist no comparation btw this year and 2014. You only need to look at kimi Raikonen stats. Vettel is a top driver but he don’t have the skills to overtake drivers like hamilton alonso and Ricciardo.
