For those who don’t know, Sebastian Vettel will replace Fernand Alonso and will race against his teammate Kimi Raikkonen, who signed a two-year contract with Ferrari back in 2014.

“Looking back to the years when I was 11 or 12 years old and looking over the years trying to see a glimpse of Michael [Schumacher] running on the track and today I was on the track and I saw the Tifosi around. There is a lot of fairy tales about Ferrari and how it feels to drive a red car and so on and I can only confirm all these fairy tales. It is a true legend that exists and it feels really, really, special to become part of that.” said Raikkonen.
