With Ferrari looking forward to a better season this time around, Stefano also asserted, “Charles Leclerc at Ferrari is strong, Carlos Sainz has gone to Ferrari. There is Fernando Alonso back with Alpine.

The former team principal of Ferrari further expressed, “Sebastian Vettel is at Aston Martin and will want to show he is not the driver we saw last season. Lando Norris at McLaren. George Russell at Williams.

Adding on, Domenicali continued with his interview with the Daily Mail, “Mick Schumacher at Haas. Ha, I knew him when he was a bump in his mother Corinna’s body. He reminds me of Michael. He is a team player — Michael was that more than anything else.

A small detail: the first time I saw Michael he had a notebook with him, and the first time I saw Mick at his Prema team (with whom he won the F2 title last year) he had a notebook and pen.” the newly appointed Formula One boss concluded.

The new season’s pre-testing is already underway at the Bahrain circuit with the first race to commence on March 28 at the same venue.
