Former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo says the team needs to be clear who its ‘number one’ driver is:
“In the years I worked there was Lauda with Regazzoni, who had to swallow some bitter morsels, but Lauda was faster and it is right that we aimed at him. In fact we won two world championships and we lost one by a few points in Japan. Then Schumacher: Barrichello, Irvine and Massa were drivers able to win races, bring important points for the championship, but it was clear that Schumacher was number one. It was not our decision, the stopwatch said so. In general a little clarity is needed.” – the former Ferrari president explained.
