Ferrari Staying Grounded After Malaysia Victory

After victory at the Malaysian Grand Prix, the Ferrari F1 team are keeping their feet firmly on the ground and will not get ahead of themselves.

In a highly strategic race helped by the extremely hot temperatures Sebastian Vettel took his first win since the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2013, but this time it was different, it was in a Ferrari. The German was elated with the win and so were the team. You just had to look at the faces of the team bosses and the mechanics to see what that victory meant to them.

But Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene knows that there is still a long way to go to beat Mercedes. “Now we’ve got to be realistic, keep our feet on the ground and our concentration at a high level, because Mercedes is still a formidable contender.”

Although on a high from his win, Vettel was still realistic about the future. “We must be realistic, Mercedes were a bit struggling today but they have a great package and our target is to make the gap smaller at every Grand Prix and make sure that we are the team right behind them,” said the 4 time world champion.
