Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has admitted that he had thought Michael Schumacher's history with the Scuderia may have seen the German make it harder for Sebastian Vettel to pass in the closing stages of the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Screen print this one - Piercarlo defendng MS.

I think he did the right thing on two, maybe three scores. First, the two are friends (as much as fellow F1 drivers can be), how could MS look SV in the eye and so 'OK I held you up and cost you the WDC but it was an extra point for me!'.....second, he's a compatriot, so even if there was no friendship I'm sure he wouldn't want to be depriving his own nation of sporting success through selfishness, and third, who's to say he wouldn't have let FA past in the same easy manner? I this Luca Di Mountaprotesto is just showing his true, bitter colours.

schumi had a cushy job with ferrari, yet he turned down a chance to return with ferrari, citing neck problems. he then recovered pretty instantly to sign up with merc. the love affair with ferrari was well and truly over.

Wow. Are Ferrari really still complaining about the last race? First the flag situation in which they blatantly lie and say 'oh we had so many people from around the world telling us we should look into it. We aren't trying to undermine the results. We swear'.Give us a break. I lost so much respect for Ferrari. Also, did you really think Schumi would help Ferrari? Wow you are crazier than I thought. You forced him to retire with a swift kick in the rear after how many titles? Then you have them slamming Excel stone when they pride themselves on professionalism. Complete joke.

And to think a few days ago someone came down on me here on crash for calling Ferrari a "trainwreck of a team".

Seriously. Can Ferrari and the people that run it be anymore unlikeable? It's staggering!

Ah Richard, you never fail. A cushy job at Ferrari? So when MS joined Ferrari they were a championship winning team? Na, that was the end of their 19 year dry spell. And lets not forget, had MS not broken his leg in 1999, it would have been eight titles. Both MS and Ferrari had a tremendous spell and they capitalised, largely down to the efforts of the Schumacher/Brawn partnership, and a fast, bullet proof car. There was a great article in F1 Racing about MS after retirement Pt1, it would surprise many of you. And his 'citing of neck problems' was in fact,as far as we can say its fact, a broken neck sustained when he came off racing his motorbike. Testing the Ferrari was what inticed him back into the sport. Personally, I'd have put him in Massa's seat for 2013. Massa finished well, but a handful of good races doesn't make you a title contender. I remember Stirling Moss saying Ferrari's biggest problem was making their own engines. They then went on to have two and a half years wit
