It's almost as if Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari found each other in the 'lonely hearts' column of a newspaper, or carried on seeing each other after one of those terrible dating shows that Channel 4 is so fond of broadcasting.
While not exactly 'undateable', both were somewhat downtrodden in 2014, lacking some of the star quality that made each a household name in modern Formula 1. But they got firmly back on track together this year, helping each other get over recent long-term relationships and 'back out there', as it were.
Last season was a disaster for Ferrari. The paucity of results (including no race win for the first time since 1993) led to wholesale changes at management level, and the departure of star driver Fernando Alonso, who after five seasons finally lost patience at the Scuderia's inability to build a car good enough to win him a third world championship.
