di Montezemolo could 'never have anticipated such a difficult start'

“I [will] do F1 as long as F1 represents for us the most important research centre,” he assured, quoted by Reuters. “The decision of the V6 is important because turbo-six is good for the future, not only for Ferrari but also for Mercedes and others.

“F1 is really booming all over the world in terms of globalisation. This year we will go to India, last year we were in Korea and [in 2014] to Russia. F1 is really becoming a worldwide sport.

“Today, aerodynamics means 90 per cent of the performance, but I think this is not good because we are not building satellites or airplanes – we're building cars. Aerodynamics have to be less relevant in the performance of the car.”

And to think that Raikonen still managed to get a race win in the dog that was the F60 in 2009 in dry conditions at Spa. I think Ferrari have a few tough years ahead of them.

Agree about Mclaren -sure Ron wouldn't allow it, but then, why would he want to go anywhere else? Most drivers would love to drive for Ferrari!
