The Running Commentary


Luca sounding like a spoilt child!!


Below comments by Luca di Montezemelo on the Singapore race, which was more popular in Singapore than the opening of the Olympic games.  

  The Italian marque’s President Luca di Montezemolo slammed the event as a “circus” track at which only the appearance of the safety car lottery could spice up.

“All this is humiliating for F1 and it is an aspect I want to talk about with the other teams in the next few weeks,” Montezemolo, the chairman of the Formula One teams’ alliance FOTA, told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Now call me contentious but perhaps this has something to do with the fact that his pit crew demolished his and Massa’s hopes of victory with a poor show and the fact that Kimi couldn’t resist the lure of the wall so decided to drive into it. I am sure had the team won we would have heard about how challenging the circuit was, but his drivers managed to conquer it as well as their opponents and win!

Grow up Luca, this was a race that was well liked by the people watching and certainly provided great entertainment, the whole safety car thing needs to be debated rather than the actual track (maybe the length of the race given that they almost reached the 2 hours limit)

    Aah Mike, Stop knocking Ferrari, you need to read this in context. While you’re gazing at your navel and maybe tripping over some elephant sh*t in the process you will be well advised to read this:

    Clearly you did not read my comment correctly, in that I said that the whole safety car needs to be debated and I see that you agree with this. I think though that Luca still sounded like a spoilt child throwing a tantrum!

    Hi Devil,

    Managed to read the article you linked to me this morning, really interesting comments that followed though. In the main Luca came in for a bashing, really his timing of the outburst was a bit problematic
