"I don't think there will be regret because at the end when we took some decisions, we took them thinking they were the right decisions and today we have a fantastic driver like Charles where we invested a lot as Ferrari. I think he's got a lot of talent. If he's got the right car, I'm pretty sure he can challenge Lewis Hamilton. We've made our choices, and I think together with Carlos we are very strong. I don't think there will be any regret."
