Sebastian Vettel has told Ferrari he is certain they will enjoy more success as a pairing after his first victory for the team.

The four-time world champion won just his second race for Ferrari in Malaysia last weekend, beating the previously dominant Mercedes in a straight fight. Following the victory, Vettel returned to Maranello to celebrate the win and he said he is convinced there will be “many more great moments” for him as a Ferrari driver.

“It was a very emotional moment,” Vettel said. “I have won many races, but the first one with Ferrari is very, very special.

“On Sunday night I wanted to celebrate with the mechanics and I said to them, ‘thanks a lot, but I want to be one of you, no more no less. I am part of the team and, even if out on track, I’m alone, I know that really I never am, because I am always with you.

“I want to thank you for giving me a nice car and I think, in fact I know, that we will experience many more great moments together.”

Vettel’s win at Sepang was the 40th of his Formula One career, leaving him just one victory behind Ayrton Senna on the all-time winners list.
