Wow, Montezemolo thinks that at 22 years Sergio is to inexperience to drive for Ferrari, just shows what good judgment teams in the past showed when taking drivers of a similar age and winning championships.

Maybe if Ferrari took a punt on talented youth like Perez they may find it could yield success, as paying experience drivers 30m have not worked for a few years now.

Ferrari maybe need to take a leaf out of a now retired team principal's book and try not to be so conservative and introduce youth you never know they could get a record breaker.

....yeah Rons! Dennis the menace got pushed coz he knew he had to go after the mayhem he caused in 07!! And when McTwerps got caught with the full plans of Ferraris current car they were actually competing against, that was the icing on the cake as far as Mercedes were concerned and negotiations for Mercs to run their own team began immediately after the 07 season finished. They couldnt wait to get out of there! I think he is still a laughing stock today after all the big talk about Hamilton winning loads of titles. 1 in 5 years dont say Superstar in a career so far littered with accidents, penalties and the odd mini-scandal here and there!

Luca is showing his age.. Perez is one of the fastest drivers in F1 today and certainly has a wise head for 22 yrs old, if i was in Luca's shoes he'd be my number 2 driver for sure!
