Montezemolo can't stand the repeated humiliation of having his beloved Ferrari being trounced three years in a row by that drinks company and can't believe that Bernie is still allowing that to happen. It is such humiliation for the Ferrari brand and its alleged 'unbeatable structure'. His comments ooze that 'Ferrari Arrogance' we have all come to know and love.

I hate agreeing with Luca but I have been wanting the emphasis on the aero aspects of cars to be reduced and more investment in the mechanical components for some time. DRS (which I hate)is just a workaround to allow overtaking of cars that create too much turbulence due to the aerodynamics used. More emphasis on mechanical grip and more testing would liven up the sport a lot. I also think there needs to be more tyre options and manufacturers involved so that teams have choice of tyres that best suit their cars.

Bernie as turned formula into a corporate parade for investors, that is why we have politically unacceptable fixtures such as the bahrain gp or frankly any of the middle east venues. Montezemelo is not a credible commentator, more a jilted lover where F1 is concerned.

Well he really does have a point,along with insideline.
F1 should return to 2008 spec cars, we dont really need DRS, Kers, pirelli, or so much serodynamics to have a good race. !

As usual Ferrari trying to muddy the water.

I'm sure he's referrring to Red Bull. There cars were not illegal and Ferrari and McLaren were seeking clarification on grey areas. Not surprisingly mid season the FIA changed the rules........ amazing.

What eles does the man want..... ah yes, Vettel to drive a car without an engine next year.

@insideline sorry to be irritating but I saw you comment before it was deleted, and it included words that some may see as 'rude' and 'swearing' hence why your comment was deleted :)

"The era of the one man show cannot continue - the future should be in the hands of a team that will look after all the different areas"

Yeah, we all know which team he's refering to. That way, they can look into all areas and ban anything that makes other cars beat Ferrari and penalise any driver that isn't Alonso. Montezemolo will then stop moaning and claim that period as the glory years of F1.

Seems rediculous but, knowing how much influence they have, Ferrari will almsot certainly push for it.
