Ferrari president ironic about the return of the German, but in Mercedes: “I was to pay him back the urge to run.” Then on Alonso: “It’s a real man team, more than Raikkonen was great. Who am afraid more of Hamilton-Button or Brawn-Schumacher? None”
FIORANO, 18 December 2009 – The Siamese twins torment Luca di Montezemolo. Last year, the same brother Raikkonen, the one in 2009 had “taken over” the most talented Finn who first year at Ferrari was able to take the world title, had disappointed a lot ‘. Now twinned with Michael Schumacher (who “swore at Monza: Ferrari is my family, I’ll stay for life”), “as the Prancing Horse has to offer him a car wants to run with the Mercedes.” “It’s extraordinary story of the twins,” said Ferrari president, with the pleasure of taking off a sassolone the shoe in the traditional Christmas dinner for the exchange of greetings with reporters. As with Kimi wrong, even with Michael (which he tries in vain to call during dinner) chooses the road of irony.
Sarcasm – But from that irony is understood as a Montezemolo does not go down that after a declaration of eternal love red Maranello, chooses to go racing again even with the Silver Arrows. “I prefer to think of the true twin, the one that gave us so much that at one dressed in other colors.” And then: “Did I give him back the urge to run, when I asked him to replace Massa. For ten minutes he said no, and then convince him to do so because Ferrari is a lifetime. Renounced problems neck, when, in spite of the antisportività Frank Williams, the snooty tone of the English when, without being one, believe they can explain Italians as being athletes, we got to get him to do a test at Mugello. He was sorry lot. Ferrari is a family but has no car and money to give to his brother, unlike the Mercedes. I think 41 years is not 35, but Ross Brawn believe that the twin could do well. Good luck. ” Piero Ferrari laughs: “At the office will change the picture of a twin with those of the other.” “I keep the real ones,” says the lawyer. 2009 has been forgotten. For F60, also blame the uncertainty of a regulation strange, not competitive. For the incident with Felipe. For the war of Mosley. The folly of the absence of testing. For installations empty. And for a single success. Worst result since ’96, if we exclude the year 2005.
Alonso – Renault Alonso arriving, to be presented in Madonna di Campiglio after 11 January.Domenicali “I proposed it three years ago. Todt point to Kimi, that was great. Only it’s not man-team, as it is Fernando and how it was every major champion in history. It’s fast, knows how to work with the team, wants to return to flying after two years mediocre. Felipe wants to go racing again. Even if you can not train. How to forbid a player step on the grass after an injury. madness. Luca Badoer had to him after preferred him to replace Michael Salo in ’99. Him, and then Giancarlo Fisichella, who after one close to victory with Force India, did not arrive in Q2, we did not realize how competitive the F60.
MOSLEY-Todt – “I prefer to remember the good things, like in terms of security, Mosley era. The legal uncertainty detrimental to the sport, and not at random for the first time since ’73 I thought that Ferrari, the CDA was unanimous, left the F1, which was not F1. Now the period is fascinating and Todt, great organizer, the F1 can get back to being competitive, technology and innovation. With attention to reducing unnecessary costs, but also talked of revenues . that other word he never used. It also serves a judge seriously. ”
Future – “Keep the countries with traditionally lower costs of inputs to the GP, reflect the output stage of Toyota and BMW. Luckily, Mercedes and Renault remain. Some circuits seem to camp, and people asked me not to pass more .
Fiat – “The agreement with Chrysler is useful for both. In America in 2010 will do the 300, the flagship, and will produce the 500. Then there’s the Jeep brand, extraordinary, and Dodge. They are ahead in the car electric us on methane, LPG, diesel. We are complementary. will the Juliet of the ALF and the new Doblò. Iveco plaguing the area and that of construction, but also suffer from all competitors. ” More concerned copying Hamilton-Button or the Brawn-Schumacher? “I do not fear anyone.”
