(AP) -- Four-time champion Sebastian Vettel enters the new Formula One season in the unusual position of being the outsider. This time, the Ferrari driver is doing the chasing - behind the Mercedes pair of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

Vettel used to be the man to beat, winning the title four years in a row with Red Bull. But Mercedes ended that dominance in crushing style last year and Vettel - who seemed isolated and despondent throughout the season - made the switch to Ferrari.

"The change felt right for me and it gives me a lot of joy," Vettel said. "My ambition is to be right there at the top again, not only for me but also in terms of the team. In this respect, we should make a perfect fit."
