Montezemolo: Red Bull needs to learn some respect

Luca di Montezemolo: I see people who won world championships who don't quite know how to behave as champions.
Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has criticised Red Bull Racing and has told the Milton Keynes-based outfit that it needs to show some respect.

His comments were made at Ferrari's traditional pre-season 'Wrooom' event, at the Madonna di Campiglio ski resort in the Italian Dolomites, and his outburst follows on from Red Bull motorsport advisor Dr. Helmut Marko saying that newly crowned F1 world champion, Sebastian Vettel would be 'stupid' to leave them for the Scuderia.

"I see people who won world championships who don't quite know how to behave as champions," Montezemolo told reporters. "When they have won 10 percent of what we have won, then we'll respond."

Meanwhile, asked about news Red Bull is to be investigated by FOTA, the Formula One Teams Association, for an alleged breath of the Resource Restriction Agreement [see separate story – click here], Montezemolo took the chance to again re-iterate that this is why a budget cap is a bad idea.

“I have heard these stories, but I don't know if they are true,” he continued. “If they turn out to be correct, then it shows that our long held view that we are against an artificial cap is the right one.

“It is impossible to run checks when, for example, there are companies involved which can manufacture in various countries.”
