Luca di Montezemolo knows politics, and this comment from him seemed perfectly pitched to piss off Ron Dennis.
Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo dedicated his team’s Belgian Grand Prix triumph on Sunday to an employee at an English photocopy shop.
“It’s a perfect victory, for which I want to thank Raikkonen, Massa, (team boss Jean) Todt and all these guys,” he said after Finland’s Kimi Raikkonen led Brazilian teammate Felipe Massa across the finish line.
“I want to dedicate it to our fans who believe in the fairness of the sport and to this English gentleman who in the month of June wanted to inform us that someone linked to an opponent team entered into his shop and asked him to copy dozens of pages containing technical information about our car.
“Without him it would never have been possible to shine the light on to one of the worst pages in the history of motorsport,” he added.
