‘Formula One isn’t working’ -Montezemolo

In an interview earlier this week with the Wall Street Journal, Luca Di Montezemolo was quoted as saying, “Formula One isn’t working.”

There has been a lot of chatter that they are on the verge of unveiling a new LMP1 project and those rumors are only being intensified with Fernando Alonso serving as the honorary starter for Le Mans Saturday. Montezemolo served as the honorary starter himself back in 2009, which was not-so coincidentally, the same time he and the FIA were butting heads over team budget caps.

Di Montezemolo was very animated in the interview and upset with the direction Formula One is going. He feels that FIA is more concerned with efficiency than they are excitement, which he cites as the reason for the decline in TV ratings.

    Actually, the headline is a mis-quote from Luca Di Montezemolo.

    What he actually said was “Ferrari isn’t working”…..

    ……”We already have specific financial advantages over all the other teams, and we can lean on officials, as and when required…….. but really….. it’s not enough. We need to win races, regardless of whether we deserve to win.”
