Corriere della Sera: Montezemolo would hire Stoner and Simoncelli

Luca di Montezemolo was present at the Gran Premio d'Italia TIM at Mugello over the weekend. In a statement published in Corriere della Sera, the president of Ferrari made a parallel between the situation facing his team in F1 with that of Ducati: “We started the year badly, I'm happy with my drivers but we need improve the car. I hope that Ducati can recover also.” Regarding the two MotoGP riders he would hire, Montezemolo was quite clear: “One would be Stoner, a good guy and mentally strong, I’ve always liked him. The other would be Simoncelli, who reminds me a little of Villeneuve in the early years. In racing, the important thing is to be fast. After that, if there are problems, they can be solved. This applies to both cars and motorcycles.”
