Di Montezemolo warns F1 over future rules

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has warned that his team's continued presence in Formula 1 is dependent on major changes to the rules - particularly testing rules and third cars."Formula 1 is still our life, but without Ferrari there is no Formula 1, just as without Formula 1 Ferrari would be different", di Montezemolo said.

Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Greetings earthlings. I hope you have enjoyed my latest edict, I expect it to be followed to the letter. Ferrari is Formula 1 as Formula 1 is Ferrari.
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
I agree with you President di Montezemelo but we need to be careful how we portray the feelings of our Ferrari family. We need to be seen to be reasonable.
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Address me as Emperor di Montezemelo. Reason is for simple life forms, superior beings like myself know better and as such are required to dictate to you.
Bernie   Bernie Ecclestone
I was always a fan of dictators, particularly A...
todt   Jean Todt
I'll stop you there Bernie. I think we need consensus from all the teams Luca, we cannot just pander to Ferrari, I would be accused of favouritism.
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Nobody has called me Luca since I was a boy-king. Enough of your patter Todt, you were my favoured underling until you sought power as FIA president. Traitors to the emperor will suffer retribution.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I think Emperor di Montezemelo has valid points regarding the future of F1, I support him fully in calling for more testing and more Ferrari's on the grid.
massa   Felipe Massa
What the..
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Thank you Fernando, one who truly understands otherwordly greatness. Felipe, I will humour your presence until one more worthy is found, or my demand for a grid-full of Ferraris is met.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Thank you Emperor, I value your leadership and wisdom always. I will continue to mentor Felipe.
massa   Felipe Massa
You brown-nosing, two-faced....let me know when you're finished licking his ass there Fernando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Look and learn Dopey. Why do think your wing was flapping like a butterfly in India and mine wasn't?
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
When you're finished with his ass try licking my "popsicle" Fernando. Choose a flavour from cherry, banana... and Button.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I hope they get an extra Ferrari on the grid to accommodate you Britney. I'm getting tired of your excess hairspray wafting over to my half of the garage.
nico   Nico Rosberg
I am surprised you would want me to leave Michael given how much effort you have made to guide me. I feel now is the right time for me to win races and championships, and it's critical I have a competitive car.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Mmmm, desperation. When I joined Ferrari the car was about as competitive as a toilet bowl on wheels. Then again I had the comfort of 19 race wins and two world titles at your age.
nico   Nico Rosberg
I can only dream of becoming the next German to win in a Ferrari Michael.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Keep dreaming, though at least you could then graduate from the pantheon of "great" German F1 drivers without a win: Britney, Glock, Sutil, Bartels, Danner, Heidfeld. An elite bunch.
HeidiHi   Nick Heidfeld
Life is not about winning Michael, it's about taking part, and partying.
