F1 » Ferrari appoints new F1 team principal

benignlyindifferent: Richard, I understand but why the complete divorce from Ferrari? Can you provide an insight? I would have thought he would have returned to another role within the organization.
simple! marchionne is ceo of fiat chrysler who currently OWN ferrari. ferrari are buying out of fiat control and are floating on the stock exchange. marchionne will then have little or no control over ferrari, so ferrari are being allowed to put their own choices in charge. you could well find that mattiacci will be moved within the fiat chrysler organisation. there is a huge commercial undertaking in the floating of ferrari and they are paying fiat something like 1.5bn to become independent. when these moves started up 6-8 months ago, i said that we would see further changes before the end of the year. and the likelihood of brawn being drafted in , is very high. complete re-organisation!
Thanks for the perspective. I

Is it a complete divorce in between Matiacci and Ferrari? Where did you here that? Thanks for your reply!
In several of the articles I have read it strongly implies that Ferrari and Matiacci are parting ways as they thank him for his 15 or so years with the company. Would like to know if this is coronet or not.

F1 » Alonso hits back at Mattiacci comments

I read Mattiacci's comments in totality. Nothing stated or even implied that suggested dissatisfaction with FA. In fact, up until now I thought both parties were handling the divorce rather well. I think Alonso is taking things a bit personal. As the season has unfolded I am questioning both McLaren's and Ferrari's decisions. McLaren is getting FA with all his faults and if the car is not good, he will be a handful. And Ferrari is getting a driver whose stock has fallen dramatically in many people's eyes this year. If the car is good Kimi will deliver and they perhaps should have pursued one of the young great rising talents. I am not sure Seb is the enormous talent many thought he was but may just be another very good F1 driver. Time will tell.

F1 » Button calls on McLaren to ‘fight hard’

ANy pay cut JB might take would almost certainly be offset with performance incentives. If the car proves good he could make a lot of money. and wishful thinking perhaps, but I am beginning to think KM is test driver and JB joins Alonso as race drivers for next year. I suspect the Alonso cannot be announced until after the race because major sponsorship is also likely to be changing teams and cannot be announced until after Sunday.

F1 » Ecclestone: ‘No point’ F1 targeting young fans

Yes, I do understand. I used Shell in my Kart because it was better. The fuel tests we conducted always demonstrated the highest allowable octane ratio and this was consistent from week to week. Could not say the same for some of the other fuels. Today, however, I buy Shell primarily because they are one of the supporters of a sport I love, F1. I can't really say it is any better than the others as I have not raced Karts for several years.
