Montezemolo: “We have achieved a lot, but now we want to win”
Maranello, 19 November – At the start of the week in which this year’s Formula 1 World Championship will be decided, Luca di Montezemolo wanted to send out a personal message to all the men and women who work for Ferrari.
“We can be proud of what we have achieved so far,” wrote the President. “For the past sixteen years, with very few exceptions, we have got used to reaching the final stage of the championship in this situation and here we are again this season, so that whatever the outcome, we have been contenders.
“However, pride is not enough: we want to win,” continued Montezemolo. “Yesterday in Austin the team once again did a perfect job as indeed did both drivers; Fernando made it to the podium yet again and Felipe drove a fantastic race, apart from also demonstrating once again that he is a team player. Now we go to Sao Paolo, Brazil with the will to win, knowing that we will fight for it right to the last kilometre of the last lap of the race at Interlagos. I know it will be very tough, but I and all of us believe we can do it!”
