2011 was a tough season. Second year at Ferrari and expectations were not met because the F150° Italia was never at a par with its main adversaries. Even so, Fernando competed at the highest level and achieved a memorable victory in the Great Britain GP at the Silverstone racetrack. He was second after that victor, but the technical inferiority of his car made recovery impossible. Despite it all he fought for second place almost until the end and concluded the season in a more than admirable 4th place.
Fernando renewed this year with Ferrari and will defend the colours of the “Scuderia” until 2016 and fulfil his desire to wear the red suit until the end of his career.
