Former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo was apart of Michael Schumacher’s title-winning years. He has seen Scuderia Ferrari at their best, and at their worst. When asked for his opinions on the SF90, which Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc will drive throughout 2019, he shows his frustrations over the slight colour change.
As always, the Ferrari is red, but this years’ colour is slightly weaker. However, Luca di Montezemolo will take back is concerns if the car beats Mercedes and the rest of the field after Abu Dhabi.
“The Ferrari red, in my opinion, is sacred, it is a brand recognised across the world and therefore I do not really like it,” – the former Ferrari President said, as reported by Italian newspaper TuttoSport.
“It is like changing the colour of a flag and I am not convinced by the story that in doing so we have saved some weight. But if all this should lead to a long-awaited success, then I would be willing to put aside the sorrow for the colour.” – Luca di Montezemolo concluded.
