Alonso said:

This day is not easy for me, because even though I always looked to the future with great enthusiasm and determination, at the end of this year, my journey as a Ferrari driver will come to an end.

Vettel being excited, said:

The next stage of my career in F1, will be with Scuderia Ferrari and for me this means that the dream of a lifetime has finally come true. When I was a child, Michael Schumacher in the red car was my idol and now it is an incredible honor to have the opportunity to drive a F1 Ferrari car.
