Montezemolo: “A car capable of winning right from the start in 2013”


Maranello, 29 November –At midday today, everyone was in the pavilion behind Ferrari’s Centro Sviluppo Prodotti (Product Development Centre.) All the men and women of the Scuderia had gathered to hear the words of President Luca di Montezemolo, who wanted to address the team at the end of a long and closely contested season. Having to comment on two second places – Fernando Alonso in the Drivers’ championship and the team in the one for Constructors – is never easy, especially when winning is in one’s DNA, a fact underlined by Montezemolo. “You should be proud of what you have done,” he said, “because you managed to be contenders right to the very end, even if we did not have the quickest car. There were at least two cars, the McLaren and the Red Bull, that were better than ours. Therefore having managed to get ahead of at least one of them in the Constructors’ and keeping Fernando in the fight right to the end, was very significant and I wish to thank you for that. We managed it mainly because of our incredible reliability, the work from the pit wall and during the pit stops and in the way we reacted after a very difficult start.”
