Montezemolo claim No Favouritism in Ferrari

Published

on

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has said that he doesn’t worry what others say regarding their conclusions and insisted that they are very clear about their strategies.

Ferrari shielded their race strategy, In US Grand Prix F1 title competitor Fernando Alonso offered a more beneficial position on the grid, following Ferrari adapted five places grid penalty for his team-mate Felipe Massa.

Also, the Italian F1 squad has faced huge criticism over their informal appeal which they made to FIA so as to get the required clarification regarding Sebastian Vettel’s overtake in the season finale held at Brazilian Grand Prix.

“Since I returned to Ferrari in 1991, I have always said that the drivers did not run for themselves, but for Ferrari,” Luca di Montezemolo said.

“Where one can win, the other must help. Whoever does not like it, I do not care. Others are critical, but they do the same, albeit through less transparent means. In Austin, we interpreted the sporting rules to the limit, as others do, but we did it openly. We could have lied, but still they disliked our explanation and called it ‘dirty tricks’.”

“We have done it before (most notably during the Schumacher era), and we will do it again, but never in the first three races or first half of the year, why does Mark Webber have so many problems with his car?” he asked, “Because the newest parts are reserved for the driver having better results? This is normal to us, so it seems logical that we never say anything about it. We do not speak of the other teams, but they still like to talk about us. He said.

“In Austin, we did the only thing possible. What was not fair is that condition of the track meant that Alonso, who qualified on the ‘dirty’ side, would lose 25 metres [at the start]. We had to do everything possible within the rules.”
