Oct.22 (GMM) Luca di Montezemolo insists Ferrari is not having second thoughts about its formula one driver lineup.
After Renault's Fernando Alonso won the Singapore and Japanese grands prix against the odds, the Ferrari president was asked if he looked at Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa and wondered if they were the best selection for F1's most famous team."These types of thoughts we had four years ago, now we are very happy," di Montezemolo is quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport."We are working on the (2008) title with a different driver to our champion of last year," he explained, "and both of them are delivering to us the manufacturers' title."If there is one aspect with which we have no problems, it is our drivers," Montezemolo said. "When Raikkonen was having a difficult time in the second part of the season, Massa was in extraordinary form."Montezemolo, and his FOTA deputy John Howett, met with FIA president Max Mosley in Geneva on Tuesday, where they agreed a raft of cost-cutting measures for F1."We have agreed to meet again after Brazil to discuss the chassis rules for 2010 onwards," he said. "And further cost cuts."
