F1 » Ferrari 'the only car manufacturer in F1', says di Montezemolo


Whilst acknowledging his 'respect' for Mercedes' increased involvement in F1 in 2010 after buying out 2009 double world champions Brawn GP, Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo insists that the mythical Scuderia is 'the only car manufacturer' still present on the grand prix grid

richie. luca is totally correct. he did NOT say that they have won every year. we all know that brawn won last year, but that does not enter the equation. ferrari ARE the purest team in f1, designing, building their own cars, and their own engines, in italy. and always have done!.
merc BOUGHT an british engine, BOUGHT an english/japanese team. little or nothing is pure merc
renault are no longer owned by renault, but by an investment company.

I've just been on the roads (surprisingly icy) and followed a Ferrari some of the way. It doesn't matter what model of Ferrari it is, when you see one you always have to have a look. Even people who profess no interest in cars take a second look when you point out a Ferrari. Lotus is another car which always catches the eye. I'm sure if I ever see a Mclaren on the road I'd be looking every time too. Can't say I blink too much when I see a Merc or a Renault Clio.

It really makes you wonder about Luca's motives last yr - I'm now convinced that Max was right all along although his proposed figure was too severe. The new teams will need cap sooner rather than later - it will make the racing fairer and more exciting for the fans.
Hope Schumi sticks it right to Luca and beats the Ferraris
