Di Montezemolo remembers Enzo Ferrari


Though it is almost a quarter of a century since his death, the memory of Enzo Ferrari is still very much alive.

As the team looks ahead to the second half of the season, when it is aiming to fight back with the same spirit shown in 2010, but with ultimately more success, its president, Luca do Montezemolo, paid tribute to the man who created a legend.

"The example of the Founder is ever present and on a sad anniversary like this one, it is important to revive his memory, especially for the youngest generation," di Montezemolo told the team's official website. "He was a man who knew how to look to the future, even at a time when our country was plunging towards a dramatic crisis, pursuing his objectives with incredible determination.

"His dream became reality which today represents a sporting and industrial entity that is admired and envied all over the world. I am sure that, as he watches us from up above, he is happy to see that Ferrari continues to produce ever more innovative cars and that we are still at the top in motor sport, fulfilling the dreams of millions of fans of the marque wherever they are in the world."

Those who wish to pen their own thoughts on the team's legendary founder can send a message (in English or Italian) to press.office@ferrari.com and the most significant will be published over the next few days at the team's website.
