Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari locks his brakes at the Bahrain GP 2015

The Prancing Horse. The Italian Stallion. Synonymous with racing and Schumacher. 

Finnish champion Kimi Raikkonen made his return to the prancing horse just last year after a break from the team, and partners former World Champion Sebastian Vettel. 

Currently second in the Driver’s standings, Ferrari will hope to continue their impressive start to their 2015 Formula One season. Sebastian Vettel has been in terrific form this year, having finished on the podium in three out of the four races so far (including a victory in the Malaysian GP)  and is presently at third spot in the Driver’s Standings with 65 points.

Crucially for the Marcello-based team, Vettel has been provided very good support by Kimi Raikkonen, who continues to deliver consistent performances. The Finnish driver is currently in fourth spot in the Driver’s standings with 42 points and after a disappointing start at Melbourne, where he had to retire midway through the race, has made a strong comeback finishing in the top- four in each of the next three races.

Rumours spread like wildfire that Ferrari were considering signing Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes; the rumour was fanned by the fact that neither Hamilton nor Raikkonen had renewed their contracts with their respective teams. However, Ferrari principal Maurizio Arrivabene quashed these rumours completely. 

Vettel's contract with Ferrari runs through to 2017.

Raikkonen has good memories of the Catalunya circuit, having won here twice in 2005 and 2008 and he will be hoping to win his first race of this season and build further momentum for his side.

The Iceman also holds the record for the fastest lap at the Catalunya Circuit, a record he set in 2008. With an absolute powerhouse of driving talent and the motors to help spur it along, things look positive for Ferrari this racing weekend.
