Four time world champion Sebastian Vettel has stated that he is delighted with the ambition and the atmosphere within Scuderia Ferrari and how the team aim to beat Mercedes in 2015.
The German joined the Maranello based outfit ahead of the 2015 season after suffering an extremely difficult 2013 with Infiniti Red Bull Racing. In his first race for Ferrari, Vettel finished in third place while at the Malaysian Grand Prix he started the race from the front row and took victory giving the Prancing Horse their first victory since 2013.
He has finished on the podium in three of the opening four Grand Prix and has singled out new Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene and technical director James Allison for turning the team around.
Scuderia Ferrari have a new power unit and upgrade package for the Spanish Grand Prix next weekend coming to the SF15-T and Vettel is hopeful that the team will be able to catch and overtake Mercedes gradually over the course of the season.
Ferrari go into the Spanish Grand Prix in second place in championship, 52 points behind the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team.
