Luca di Montezemolo Will Not Go Into Politics
On Tuesday, during his first meeting with the Italian press, he was quite succinct in denying the allegations, saying simply that he doesn't plan to enter politics. Now, he joked about forming a new party before saying that he feels at home with his current responsibilities at the helm of the Prancing Horse.
“I have an important announcement to make,” began Di Montezemolo, trying to anticipate the questions from the Italian reporters. “I am starting my own party! Seriously, I have spoken with the Ferrari family and I can say that my future is here. This work is my life and it will remain so.”
In addition, he once again emphasized the importance of having stability within his Formula One team, therefore hinting that important heads will not roll following another disappointing campaign in 2010 (contrary to the media's claims). However, minor changes will be made in order to correct some aspects of the team.
“At Ferrari we believe in stability,” he insisted, giving a clear indication that no top management figure will leave the Scuderia this winter. “But that doesn't mean the team is locked, we need to open the window from time to time to breathe fresh air.”
On the topic of team orders, the Ferrari president assured the F1 fans that, if deployed, it will be done transparently and without affecting the image of the sport. However, he insisted that both Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa will begin the season with equal chances for the world title, until one proves significantly faster than the other.
