Ecclestone: Ferrari's comeback great for F1

Bernie Ecclestone says Ferrari's return to winning ways in the 2015 season is great news for Formula 1.

"The best part is summed up in one word: Ferrari," Ecclestone told Gazzetta dello Sport when asked about the positive aspects of 2015.

"Their return to victory was very important for me and for all of Formula 1.

"It was expected. The surprise is that they are back on top so quickly," added the Briton.

Ferrari has won three races this season with Sebastian Vettel, who finished in third place in the standings, a year after the Italian squad managed just two podiums all season long.

Ecclestone admitted he always expected four-time champion Vettel to have a positive impact on the team.

"I supported Vettel's move to Ferrari and when I saw him cross the finish line first at Sepang it was fantastic," he added.
