Montezemelo warns Massa to "prove himself next season"

Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Ferrari president said, "We have a contract with Fernando until 2016 and he's the best driver in the world. Massa's contract will run for the whole of next season... we expect great things from him in 2012. Let's say he'll have to prove himself next season." Asked to rate Ferrari's 2011 season performance, "A mark out of ten for our season? I'd give a 5."

Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Greetings minions, suffice to say my latest proclamation will reverberate like thunder. Anyone wishing to serve in the court of Montezemolo must prove themselves to me.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I agree with that entirely Emperor di Montezemolo. I have spoken to Felipe regularly to remind him of the shame his poor performances bring to you.
massa   Felipe Massa
Lick-arse.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Arse-wipe.
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
You are the golden child Fernando, the best in my world. Your sacrifices please me. Felipe, prove thyself worthy or incur my wrath.
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
I can assure you President...I mean Emperor, that the Ferrari family is doing all it can to rehabilitate Felipe.
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Silence! Answer me this serf, why do you fail to bring glory to my name, why are there not more Ferrari chariots on the grid?
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
The regulations forbid it Emperor.
todt   Jean Todt
I can't be seen to appease my former employers at the expense of smaller teams.
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
I am not your employer Todt, I am your God. These small teams must be sacrificed.

On the subject of drivers with less than watertight contracts, did anyone hear that Trulli signed for 2012 without any clause in there saying he actually would be racing the car.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Smart move Trulli, you forget to read the contract?
TrulyJarno   Jarno Trulli
The important thing is that I am happy to have signed to be a part of the team, as I am happy to be a part of the world , of nature, of living and loving.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
You better check that they're not paying you with Monopoly money.
TrulyJarno   Jarno Trulli
There is no price on the love I feel for my job Michael. I trust the team, as I trust in the future, and I trust that all my customers will be completely satisfied by my exquisite brand of aromatic wines produced in my own vineyard.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Pity you didn't trust your steering wheel this year.
TrulyJarno   Jarno Trulli
The Lotus steering is faulty Fernando, I could not communicate the sensitivity of my steering inputs to what I call the true feelings of the car.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Must be the team's fault. How about you Heikki, any problems with your power steering or missing clauses in your contract, like "racing driver".
Heikki   Heikki Kovaleinen
Steering ok, contract for racing, life is good for Heikki.
