We need to see how things progress before we make those sort of predictions or scenarios.

I think there's a huge potential from a driver point of view and from a commercial point of view you can imagine the potential it would have as well.

Now they are saying that the tire rule is being changed because it doesn't suit Ferrari!

I think today was a bit too extreme.

You can see he's got huge potential.

I'm quite happy with the choice and it's really up to him to prove next year whether he's a long-term Ferrari driver or not.

This winter and next year he'll do a few more serious tests. It's a kind of open-ended agreement.

One was a nice day out and the last one was a bit more serious. You can see he's got huge potential.
