The Scuderia Ferrari Formula One team have released a teaser video clip of Sebastian Vettel undergoing a seat-fitting in the 2015 challenger. 

The German will be back in Maranello as he prepares to debut the Italian teams car on the opening two days of the Jerez test next weekend.

As Vettel and team mate Kimi Raikkonen prepare for the 2015 Formula One season the new boss, Ferrari Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene has called for there to be a technical revolution in Formula One by 2017. 

The sport has undergone extreme changes in the last twelve months with the first season of the new 1.6 litre V6 turbo charged power unit deemed an overwhelming success which saw the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team win both the Driver’s championship with Lewis Hamilton and the Constructors championship.

Arrivabene has called for the sport to be more spectacular, echoing the sentiment of Mercedes no-executive chairman Niki Lauda.

The new Ferrari boss believes that Formula One as a form of entertainment faces competition from the internet racing computer games. 

Arrivabene believes that the sport needs to undertake a global internet survey and through the various television companies to ask fans what they would like to see in Formula One in terms of enhancing the entertainment value.

Arrivabene’s comments come as the sport looks into ways of improving access to the sport for fans by introducing the possibility of paddock and pit-lane tours are ideas that have been put forward by the Formula One Promotional Working Group which is being led by Williams Martini Racing Deputy Team Principal Claire Williams.
