F1 » Montezemolo: Era of one man show cannot go on

Ferrari's Luca di Montezemolo continues to rage against the F1 rulebook and the man at the head of the sport....

I agree fully with Montezemolo about the reulations but not so sure about a Committee replacing Bernie. No one must under estimate what Bernie has done for F1 and he has been successful simply because he was and remains the Boss. It is surely up to him to designate his successor.

Regardless of the source what was said is right.
F1 needs changes. Idiocy of testing bans or penalties for racing are killing enjoyment for viewers. Plus aero, which is the worst enemy of close racing.
I'd love to see closer racing with no stupid penalties and one or two day tests after each race (maybe except back to back ones) for all teams with no extra fee.

Taking all the team and personalities out of it, some of the remarks and subsequent comments made are right.
F1 is supposed to be the pinnacle of motorsport and the real world development lab for automotive ingenuity.... If you can make your car go faster, further and more reliably than the competition you have the greater chance to win (with a good driver). This ingenuity feeds down into every day cars (better tyres, better fuel efficiency, use of composites, etc, etc.). Relying too much on aerodynamics (which does have it's place, of course) and DRS (a joke which negates real close racing), tyres which wear artificially quickly does nothing to actually help racing and does not feed into the mass production vehicles... Is anyone likely to flip the DRS switch on the way to work? No, I didn't think so. Although I don't like KERS it is all about harvesting energy (a good thing for mass pro) and it is up to the driver/team when it is used (i.e. racing). Also F1 is expensive, you have to p

This gibberish bore is doing nothing but bringing the sport constantly into disrepute and anywhere else would receive a ban.I'm an ex ferrari fanatic butgot fed up with the totally carping,negativity etc and as for the outrageous attempt with start line mechanics just to improve a drivers grid position who was obviously slower is beyond me.Even round the streets of Birmingham Fernando had a hellish of a decent car.The right man won the Championship and starting with the Toro Rosso and then that overtake of Alonso at Monza.Finally Adrian Newey should be knighted and then take his sword to Montypython whatever they call him and challenge him to a duel on horseback lol

Ferrari are an overpriced joke. Research for road cars, oh yeah, like the few thousand red coke cans on the roads have any relevance to the real world. And if he thinks the Godfather era is over he obviously doesn't own a mirror. As for the third car idea, that's exactly the same as the lower formulae - buying rather than designing. What's the point? Without resource restrictions, all you get is a grid full of Ferraris. Luca, in sport you have to take losing on the chin. And Ferrari have never been able to find a chin.
