You may already have heard that Sebastian Vettel will be the new driver of Scuderia Ferrari F1 team as the German was contracted until the end if 2017. The four-time Formula 1 World Champion is one of the most successful F1 drivers of all time and managed to win the championships in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 with Red Bull Racing.
Still, the German driver will forget the blue colours as now it will need to get used to his new team. Sebastian Vettel made its first track debut as Scuderia Ferrari’s driver and lapped the Fiorano racetrack in the F2012 car.
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.
