“Poor man… I appreciate Fernando as a person and respect him as a racer. I want he again fought for the top places, said Ricardo in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport. – I still remember our great battle with him.

The Australian also noted the strong performance of Ferrari’s pre-season tests in Barcelona.
“Ferrari looked great from the first day in Catalonia – continued Daniel. – I hope they confirm his strong test form results in Melbourne. It would be great if anyone was able to impose struggle Mercedes.
Ferrari have considerably added in speed and reliability. In addition, they may successfully understand the behaviour of the tyres. I also know that Vettel can be the strongest if in the fastest car”.
