Scuderia Ferrari has made an impressive comeback with Sebastian Vettel’s first win for the team. It was the first triumph for the Maranello-based team in almost two years and the 40th Grand Prix victory of Vettel’s career. In Kuala Lumpur, the driver from Heppenheim, Germany, outperformed his competitors with the right tactics, the driving experience of a multiple World Champion and state-of-the-art vehicle technology.

The world’s leading spark plug manufacturer has been exclusive supplier to Scuderia Ferrari for 20 years and has experienced many sporting successes with the team. “We are delighted that Sebastian Vettel’s car crossed the finishing line first – sparked by high performance spark plugs solely developed for Scuderia Ferrari.

For this reason, we join in the cheers of the winner: Grazie mille, forza Scuderia!,” comments Damien Germès, Senior Vice President at NGK Spark Plug Europe.
