Di Montezemolo departure 'positive' for Ferrari - Surer

An F1 pundit thinks long-time president Luca di Montezemolo's departure is good news for Ferrari. Marc Surer, a Swiss former grand prix driver, thinks the early noises being made by Montezemolo's successor Sergio Marchionne are honest and positive.

"In the short term, nothing will change," Surer, now a pundit on German television, told Speed Week. "But long term, the change should have a positive impact. Montezemolo has usually protected the team and rather attacked the regulations if things were not going well on a sporting level," he explained.

"The engine - the sacred cow at Ferrari - was never questioned," said Surer. "But Sergio Marchionne has already criticised not only the engine department but also admitted that energy recovery is also not good enough," he added. (GMM)
