Fernando in a Ferrari?

Not so fast, says one who should know -- Luca di Montezemolo.

Quoted by my favorite Italian news source, sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, Montezemolo implied taking on the Spaniard would “damage” the team.

Montezemolo said he would rather have drivers who work together than have the double world champion line up with Kimi Raikkonen.

Montezemolo also said he believes Max Mosley will find it hard to stay in his role as FIA head in the current climate.

Should Mosley step down, however, Montezemolo told La Gazzetta dello Sport his replacement would need to bring the same “experience, competence, character and balance” to the table.

This was a some what more guarded response than Jean Todt’s full backing of the embattled FIA chief in an earlier interview with French newspaper Le Journal de Dimanche.

Super Aguri in for Spain?

Super Aguri has sent its cars on to Barcelona, a strong sign that the team is preparing to race in this weekend’s Spanish GP.

Many believe talks are continuing with the Magma Group. An earlier deal was thought to be in place with the Dubai-financed organization, but it fell apart late last week.

A go/no-go decision to race is expected in the morning. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
