So with this in mind I have no hestitaion in including the following dialogue between Autosport and Luca di Montezemolo, Ferrari boss and big noise in the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA).
Di Montezemolo has been prominent in demanding that the teams receive a bigger share of the TV revenues that at present appear to accrue to Bernie Ecclestone's organisation. Thus:
Q. Isn't it a guarantee...
LdM: So you never want to talk about Ferrari, only Ecclestone? I haven't come here to do PR for Ecclestone! I'm kidding.
Q. When talking before Christmas about the redistribution of revenues and more, you said these things need to be re-discussed with Ecclestone. Two days later Ecclestone launched a scathing attack against Ferrari and its top management, which you've never replied to. We've now seen a hug...
LdM: You're either born a gentleman, otherwise you'll never become one.
