Montezemolo: Ferrari must determine race no. 1

Montezemolo: Ferrari must determine race no. 1 thumbnail

Longtime Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo is convinced that before the upcoming season, Scuderia must establish a clear hierarchy within the team and appoint a number 1 racer.

Ferrari faced a number of disagreements last season between their racers Sebastian Vettl and Charles Leclerc, which led the Maranell team to lose many important points.

Former Italian brand president Luca di Montezemolo is convinced that Ferrari must stop political games and simply bet on a faster racer.

“In my years at Ferrari, Lauda and Regazzoni were racing, which is lawful to swallow a lot of bitter things, but the fact was that Lauda was faster and we bet on it. We won two titles and lost one point. It was similar to Scumacher, who was No. 1. Irvine, Barrichello, and Massa were good racers, but Michael was the first racer. It was not our decision, as the stopwatch simply showed. Ferrari must continue to do so now. “
