He did, however, have some kind words of support for Hamilton, arguably putting pressure on the Brit to succeed in winning races for the Maranello-based outfit, as he managed to do on 11 occasions between 2010-2013.
“I hope he enjoys the experience in Ferrari: it's special, if you win. You have to win there. Maybe he will bring what is missing to win the world championship, they have had a competitive car for a few years."
