Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari are now "much stronger and more focused" than when he joined from Red Bull ahead of the 2015 season, hailing the progress that has been made in Maranello, despite their failure to win either the drivers' or constructors' championship.
Vettel departed Red Bull in an attempt to muscle his way back into the title picture after his title run was halted in a miserable 2014 campaign in which he was outperformed by newcomer Daniel Ricciardo.
Ferrari have made solid progress and have taken a fierce fight to Mercedes in the past two seasons, only to fall short.
However, Vettel says the Scuderia are still hitting the targets that they have set for themselves, and sees a positive future.
