E' arrivato l'inverno / Winter has arrived

Dopo tre settimane di astinenza da Gp e dopo due dalle Finali di Monza posso proprio dire che è arrivato l’inverno. La stagione si prospetta più lunga del previsto poiché dalle ultime notizie in mio possesso, non vedremo test prima del 5 Dicembre a Jerez dove sarà proprio la Ferrari a dare il via alle danze . Cresce sicuramente la voglia da parte di tutti per vedere Kimi vestito di rosso, anche se fino a fine Dicembre è ancora pilota McLaren, e cresce sicuramente la voglia di vedere i nuovi esordienti come si comporteranno con le F1. Non dimentichiamoci poi che la nuova stagione prevede molteplici cambiamenti di livrea tra le varie scuderie e quindi non ci resta che aspettare poi le presentazioni ufficiali delle nuove monoposto. Saluto calorosamente tutti i nuovi partecipanti al blog e tutti quelli che erano presenti a Monza che adesso finalmente mi conoscono, ricordandovi che noi che eravamo li saremo sempre uniti da un meraviglioso ricordo di un giorno speciale. In vista del prossimo MotorShow di Bologna che si terrà dal 7 al 14 Dicembre avevo pensato insieme a Max e ad altri di noi, di fare un mini raduno non-ufficiale Domenica 10 Dicembre, pertanto approfitto del largo anticipo in modo da dare la possibilità a quanti più possibile di organizzarsi e sentire quanti sarebbero disposti a venire per incontrarsi allo stand Ferrari. After three weeks of abstinence from Gp and after two from the Finali of Monza I can just say that the winter has arrived. The season is shown longer of the previewed one since from the last news in my possession, we will not see test before 5 December in Jerez where it will be just the Ferrari to giving the way to the dances. It grows sure wants from part of all in order to see Kimi dressed of red, even if until end of December she is still McLaren pilot, and it grows sure wants to see the new beguinners as they will be behaved with the F1. We do not forget then that the new season previews multiple changes of livery between the several team and therefore it does not remain to us then to wait for the official presentations of the new cars. I say Hello warmly to all the new participants in blog and the all those that were present to Monza that now finally knows me, remembering to you that we that we were there always we will be joined them from a wonderful memory of a special day. In sight of the next MotorShow of Bologna that will be kept from the 7 to the 14 December I had thought with Max and others of we, to make a little gathering not-official Sunday 10 Decembers, therefore I am useful for the wide advance time so as to give the how much possibility to more possible than to organize itself and to feel how many they would be disposed to come in order to meet us to the Ferrari stand.

Why grouse?

So now we know. Michael`s retired. Ross is off & Paolo has moved to Fiat. Rory is consulting & JT, though still carrying the whip, has moved from postillion to the chaise.   We have to be realistic …… all good things must come to an end.  Don`t misunderstand me, I have every confidence in those that will take over & look forward to celebrating many, many more wins under their “watch”. Yet, however we look at it, the parting of the Dream Team marks the passing of a Golden Era. We have had the enormous good fortune to be part of the Ferrari family during their years at the helm. After so many years in the wilderness their success was all the sweeter.   Will F1 ever see their like again? I doubt it, for one reason. As another Y&F old-timer (oh boy, am I going to be in trouble now!) has pointed out to me, there have been Dynamic Duos (e.g. Stewart & Tyrrell; Clark & Chapman) but never such a large group, a Dream Team consisting of so many brilliant individuals.   So, the Stables` race winners have elected to make way for new blood. We wish they could go on forever but we know they really deserve time to enjoy the fruits of their labours & they haven`t exactly been put out to stud just yet!   To the successors – You are the future. Good luck & keep up the great work. We will be supporting you all the way.    How do you bloggers feel? While I look to the future with optimism I also value the past. Jean Todt, Ross Brawn, Rory Byrne, Paolo Martinelli, Michael Schumacher – my thanks to you all.  Together you have made history.
