"We are the team that relative to last year has scored more points, that has progressed most overall.

"It's showing that we are going in the right direction and working well together."

After Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel's was disqualified from the Hungarian Grand Prix, Ferrari is ahead of McLaren on countback of second-place finishes after Carlos Sainz was promoted to the podium.
