This also included the two Ferrari drivers who were able to complete the 1000th GP outing for the Scuderia in the points.

Vettel got the last world championship point in tenth place.

After crossing the finish line, the four-time world champion said: “I can’t remember ever having made so many starts in one day, usually there is one. I have to say, I’m not a big fan of this rule because if you’re on the right side of the track, it’s a huge advantage. “

“But when you stand on the dirty side of the piste – we’ve already seen that in Monza – after a few laps there are a lot of rubber balls on the track. That’s not fair. I think we should focus on building cars that can overtake and not hold a lottery, ”emphasized Vettel, who did not mince his words when it came to his own performance.

“We weren’t fast enough and there is more than one reason for that. We know that our car is not fast enough, but this time we expected a better race pace, ”sighed the 53-time GP winner, who still doesn’t think about giving up. When asked whether it would be impossible to develop a better feeling for his red company car this year, he said: “I can still learn a lot, even if it will be difficult to achieve a huge improvement in the results.”

Luca de Meo: “A beautiful story to tell”

Why did you choose to rename the Renault team to the Alpine F1 Team?

F1 must be a constructors’ championship with prestigious brands which have made the history of the category, but more generally the history of the automobile. There must be a possible connection between Sunday’s results and Monday’s sales. A physical link that the customer can see and touch on the street. This is how Ferrari, Mercedes and Aston Martin work. Alpine fits in with this spirit, naturally including the association with Renault as an engine manufacturer. It is a choice which is part of the idea of ​​the reorganization of the group announced a few days ago. We make Alpine one of our business units. The idea is to put F1 at the center of a 360 ° system with activities related to engineering, the Alpine brand itself, the products and the Dieppe site. It is made one of the pillars of Renault’s recovery strategy. The F1 platform will be able to accelerate the notoriety of a brand that is much more focused on Europe, especially France. I am convinced that this will ensure the sustainability of motorsport activities. Every manufacturer goes through ups and downs, and some people don’t necessarily share a passion for motorsport. They see competition as an expense item only. I want to transform it to integrate it into a new business model.

Renault has confirmed its commitment to F1 in the long term, but was it hard won internally?

We always have discussions on these subjects, especially in such a difficult economic climate. The easiest thing to do would be to perceive running as an expensive hobby. But I’m a car lover and I won’t be the one to end Renault’s 43-year F1 presence. I am here to start a new dynamic. Sometimes you don’t need to change the ingredients, just put them together in different ways to create a whole new recipe.
