Re: Ferrari Boss Unhappy With Singapore Track
Luca de Montezemolo has been around the Ferrari set up now for about forty years, and I for one think he has a point.
Whilst the timing of his comment about Singapore was unfortunate in the light of events at Ferrari during the race, I think it is very unfair to dismiss his comments in the light of the race cockups.
He is making a much broader point about the spectacle of F1 and the direction in which it is heading. What would Spa be without the scenery? I think the street tracks in general are falling short, and the only reason Monaco survives is because of the location, the associated spectacle and the historical tradition. It seems mad to bring in more tracks of this type.
Singapore may as well have been a computer simulation. It wasn't a good racing track, and neither was Valencia.
