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.

piercarlo, ferrari retired schumi before he wanted to so i dont think schumi feels he owes them favor. think it was wrong though to not compete against vettel. matters not if friend or countrymen, you are still supposed to compete, not rig results. f1 is not supposed to be popularity contest. it is okay if in same team as f1 is a team sport but in brazil vettel had webber, two toro rosos and a mercedes in his team and that is just wrong. some will say but force india hitting hamlton help ferrari, but that is nature of f1. force indi was not colliding to help ferrari win wdc, it collided because it was trying to win race for force india.

Regardless of what people think, he has a duty to his employer, the paying public and his fellow competitors to race his car and he failed to do so. It wasn't that long ago he tried to put Button and Senna into the dirt

So Luca, you expect a driver from a rival team, who hasn't driven for ferrari for 6 years, and whom you personally tipped out of F1, to somehow disadvantage one of ferraris ri.vals for ferraris own gain? You're making it even easier for people to dislike your "train wreck of a team"

skooter. why do you not try to follow f1 instead of trying to find fault with others.
cushy job? yes. when schumi retired he was given a road car development job for a couple of years at a high retainer. he was still working for them when he was asked to drive flips car after the accident. he said that he couldnt because of his neck. but then ross came knocking on his door, and the neck problem rapidly cleared up, and nery a word about it since.

now, i would consider having fun with road cars and being paid handsomely, being a cushy job.

And there it is, gentlefolks, in a nutshell. Ferrari's racing mentality.

They think they are so damned important, it makes me sick. Their competitive attitude sucks, in fact I doubt whether it should be called competitive at all. They act like some sort of priviledged elite.

Vettel will do himself a huge favour if he never signs for those clowns.

Over his merc career, almost everytime I saw Shumi actually racing it was usually with Kamui or Sergio or Pedro.

This was compelling to me, was it either Shumi no better than these mid -packers, or they liked dicing with him to learn some skills?
