Ferrari supremo Luca di Montezemolo is considering his future with the company. Montezemolo is the man who has masterminded Ferrari’s return to the summit of F1 after years in the wilderness. But with Ferrari having won nine titles in the past five years, the 56-year-old is now wondering whether to quit while he is ahead.
He told The Times: “Maybe it is time to stop. Maybe it is time to retire. Maybe it is time to do something else. “I am thinking deeply about it more and more. There are so many things…”
Montezemolo was Enzo Ferrari’s personal assistant before being promoted to the role of team manager, guiding Niki Lauda to two world titles with the team.
He returned to the company in 1991 as president and managing director, his achievements since earning him superstar status in Italy.
Montezemolo has many other business interests outside of motorsport and was one of the organisers of the 1990 football World Cup in Italy.
