Vettel reunites with Toro Rosso race engineer at Ferrari

Sebastian Vettel

Four time world champion Sebastian will reunite with his former Toro Rosso race engineer Riccardo Adami who becomes the German's new race engineer at Ferrari in 2015. The German made his Ferrari debut at the team's test track in Fiorano, Italy on Saturday when he drove the F2012 in wet conditions to get acclimatized to how Ferrari cars operate.

Adami was Vettel's race engineer at Toro Rosso in 2008 when the German made his full race season debut with the Italian team with Adami overseeing Vettel's first ever Formula One victory at the 2008 Italian Grand Prix in Monza.

The news comes amid reports that Kimi Raikkonen is set to get a new race engineer in the form of Dave Greenwood from the Marussia F1 Team. Greenwood also worked for Renault. 

Vettel stated earlier this week that he knows the task ahead of him to get Ferrari back to the front of Formula One. The German will be hoping to do with Ferrari what he did with Infiniti Red Bull Racing and turn their fortunes around.
