Former chairman of Ferrari commented on the team's results at the beginning of the season. In the first races, Scuderia earned only 26 points and is inferior in speed to the top three teams.
Luca Cordero di Montezemolo: «The results of the team are like a knife in my wound. Ferrari is the most important thing in my life along with my family, because I gave the team 25 years. It hurts and I'm sorry to see such results. I don't think we are talking about a temporary crisis.
The team needs restructuring and the invitation of the best specialists.
At one time I brought Jean Todt, Stefano Domenicali, Ross Brown, Rory Byrne to the team. Later, Michael Schumacher joined us. Then Ferrari was also in a serious crisis, but we were able to rebuild the team.
It is not enough to invite specialists of different nationalities. It is necessary to change the culture of the company in those areas where it is necessary».
Besides it, Di Montezemolo criticized Ferrari managing director Benedetto Vigna for the words about the "unprecedented speed" of the 2023 car.
Luca Cordero di Montezemolo: «The triumphant speeches during the presentation seemed wrong to me, I expected the new car to be an evolutionary development of last year's».
