F1: Luca Sings No More...



Having missed the Italian Grand Prix this year whilst off playin' in the Sand Dunes of the "Other Florence,"  nee Oregon, ironically I totally missed out  upon la Scuderia Supremo Luca Cordero di Montezemolo's firing! Err, resignation; Yeah, that's the ticket...

As I cannot say I'll exactly miss A-L-L of the HOT AIR Luca's breathed upon us over the years...

Yet, one must indeed wonder if Ferrari is in trouble, or upon a disturbing Downturn, with its racing  fortunes in Formula 1 having not exactly been great lately; Uh Duh!

Although, naturally Maranello, along with le 'Reggie, aka Renault seemingly have been outspent by Mercedes in the development of this year's PU's, nee Power Units, which seems to be a major source of Ferrari and Renault powered teams lack of performance this season - for which Maranello's "Old Guard," nee Stefano Domenicali, Luca Marmorini and Luca di Montezemolo have  all now fallen upon their swords...


And while I'm certainly NOT perfect when it comes to my reporting facts, speeling and grammar; Hya! Nevertheless, there are two significant mistakes in the article above that leaped out at me.

First of all, Ferrari went onto another four consecutive world championships after winning the title for the first time in 21yrs in the year 2000; scoring 5 consecutive Driver's titles along with 6 consecutive Constructor's crowns (championships) circa' 1999-2004!

Secondly, la Scuderia last won the world championship in 2007, not '08...

UPDATE
Although it's a pretty long article, nonetheless I found it worth reading as it gives a pretty good insight on the current state of la Scuderia's current leadership woes...
