- Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne said he and his team now feel “completely confident” of mounting a championship challenge following Sebastian Vettel’s victory in Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix. Marchionne believes Ferrari will be “at the forefront of this world championship”, he said following the four-time champion’s well-judged drive to triumph. “It is, of course, hugely satisfying to be back on the top step of the podium with Seb," said Marchionne. "More importantly, however, we are now completely confident that our victory in Melbourne (the season-opener) wasn't just a one-off and that we will be at the forefront of this world championship until the last."
