Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel remains confident that more titles is certain for him at ferrari, despite a rough spell at Maranello since he arrived in 2015.
He strongly opined that the team had a promising year ahead.
“I guess it’s a question of time”, he said when asked if he felt that he would be champion again in the future. Obviously, it was a big step when I decided to change at the time when I did,” he said.
“It was clear that it would take some time, but we had a great season in 2015, we got closer and closer to Mercedes, the hopes and expectations for 2016 were high,” he added.
Going on, he admitted that the season ultimately hadn’t gone as well as he had hoped. Ferrari failed to record a single race victory last year with either Vettel or his team mate Kimi Raikkonen.
Ferrari had slipped behind Red Bull to finish third place in the constructor’s championship after finishing as runner-up to the dominant Mercedes marque in 2015.vettel claimed that while the team had not achieved what they set out to achieve in the past year, they aim to win the championship in 2017.
“I think it’s normal when you finish second in the Constructors’ you aim to finish first, We haven’t achieved what we set out to achieve in 2016 but nevertheless our main target in 2017 is to win the championship, to fight for the championship,” he said.
He said that he was quite confident with the recent developments that had been going on in the team; the German said he has seen a lot of changes and that all the new developments will only make the team closer and stronger.
So, whether titles will come at Ferrari as he claimed or not, only time would tell.
