Former Formula 1 ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone learned a lot from Enzo Ferrari. The unmistakable construction of modern Formula 1 recalls a “very special” man.
Much has been written about Enzo Ferrari. The exciting life of the illustrious founder of the world’s most famous sports car brand fills the entire bookshelves. And very few people who were fortunate enough to meet «Commendator», who died on August 14, 1988, can personally share an amusing anecdote about the great Ferrari.
Former Formula 1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone is one of those who have a very good relationship with Enzo Ferrari. In an interview with the magazine “GQ”, when asked what he admired the most: “Mr. Ferrari. He was a very special man and he helped me a lot. He taught me that the game is on the table and business is down.” . “
The 90-year-old Briton then insisted: “Formula 1 is Ferrari and Ferrari is Formula 1. It’s so simple.” Ferrari is also the oldest GP racing team in the world. Since the Formula 1 World Cup was born in 1950, Scaderia has competed in every World Championship.
However, since 2007 and Kimi Raikkonen, the Reds have been waiting for a driver’s world title, and in 2008 the Italians won the constructors’ championship for the last time. And even for this year, the top team around Mattia Binotto has declared itself a modest target with third place in the team rankings, the sixth result in 2020 after the worst result in forty years was achieved.
After the 2020 season, the Italian team boss humbly stated: “We humbly accept the sixth final ranking. It is obvious – we are not getting better just because our name is Ferrari, but we will become more competitive over time because each of us will work hard. “
The focus is on 2022 when the Rule Revolution comes into force. Trial data from Maranello’s new drive unit gives hope, as Binote revealed before the end of the season.
