Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne on Wednesday claimed that the 2018 Formula One season will feature a calm and composed Sebastian Vettel.

The 30-year-old German finished behind Mercedes-Amg driver Lewis Hamilton in the 2017 F1 driver standings. 

"Sebastian Vettel is a guy who studies a lot, studies himself and is committed," the 65-year-old said as media reports suggest.

"Therefore, I think that we will see less of his emotional side. I think he has learned enough.

"Plus, there were plenty of opportunities for him to get annoyed, as he's had a couple of rather difficult seasons, this year and the previous one," Marchionne added. 

The Ferrari chief also claimed Vettel was given a great car in the 2017 season but he could not make the most of it. 

"I think we gave them a great car in 2017 and so, from now on, it's down to him," Marchionne said.
