Luca di Montezemolo no fan of Singapore

It was a difficult day for the Prancing Horse, but Luca Cordero di Montezemolo has not lost faith in his team.

“The car is the best one around, Massa is the best and I hope Raikkonen can show his world-champion class in the last few races. Then, we'll see what happens at the end,” the Ferrari head honcho is quoted by La Gazzetta dello Sport.

And while many praised Formula One’s first race under the lights, di Montezemolo had harsh words for the event.

“Of course, when you race on a track that would work better as a circus rink or something along those lines, anything can happen, because the real show was put on yesterday by the safety car,” he said. “This is humiliating for the F1 world. During the next few weeks, I would like discuss this with all the other teams.”

Weber was found guilty of improperly moving the money and assets of his now defunct Pole Position Marketing.

The company once dealt in licensing of official Michael Schumacher merchandise. 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
