To be honest after 18 years in Formula One to answer after one good qualifying, one good result from any team, it makes no sense. I did not answer it about Ferrari in 2015, 2016. After I left Ferrari, every win, every podium they were achieving you asked me if I regret when I left Ferrari. After four years, Mercedes keep winning both championships, you are not asking me any more about Ferrari.
