A new flag flies above Maranello. Congratulations from Cardinal Bertone
Maranello, 22 July –There is a third yellow flag bearing the Prancing Horse emblem to honour the tradition of marking every win for the Scuderia, already flying on the flagpole above the gates to the Gestione Sportiva. Traditions need to be respected and at Maranello we did so immediately.
A huge number of messages and congratulatory telephone calls came in for what was a very significant victory for Fernando Alonso in the German Grand Prix.
Among the first calls to reach President Montezemolo was one from Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Secretary of State to the Vatican. His Eminence, who just six months ago visited the Ferrari headquarters in Maranello wanted, via Montezemolo, to congratulate the team and Fernando Alonso for the fantastic win at Hockenheim.
