Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene has called on his Formula 1 squad to keep its “feet on the ground” and remain focused following a historic Canadian Grand Prix victory. 

Sebastian Vettel dominated proceedings in Montreal to seal a commanding 50th career victory that propelled him back to the top of the world championship standings. 

The win marked Ferrari’s first in Canada since 2004 after Vettel claimed the Scuderia’s first pole at the circuit in 17 years on Saturday, 40 years after the Italian outfit recorded its first win in Canada with home-favourite Gilles Villeneuve

“The team was totally dominant together with Sebastian because we were working since Friday step by step, little by little, keeping our focus on what to do,” Arrivabene told Sky Sports F1. 

"Of course Sebastian is a great driver, he gave credit not only to himself and his talent but also to all the work to the team.”

But Arrivabene stressed Ferrari still has work to do in what is shaping up to be a thrilling and titanic title battle between his own team, reigning champions Mercedes and Red Bull. 

“It’s a big fight this year,” he added. “We are more or less all together so I can see Red Bull very strong, Mercedes very strong.

“I mean it’s going to be an interesting championship we have to keep our feet on the ground, head down, and to work, and we’ll see.”
