Former Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo believes that his former team can win the championship in 2017, despite setbacks in the last two races.
Two weeks after double gathering in Singapore, the Scuderia waited for another blow to Malaysia – technical problems in qualifying and the race. Kimi Raikkonen came down before the start and Sebastian Vettel started last and managed to break through to fourth place, but his gap from Lewis Hamilton increased from 28 to 34 points.

“I think everyone understands that the Ferrari is close to the goal, – said di Montezemolo in an interview with Corriere dello Sport. – The championship is complicated, but there are still five races, and with such a machine you can count on success.
Speed is very important. In the last two races, Ferrari could win a double victory. But it is better to have a reliable but quick car than a reliable, but uncompetitive.”
