There are many reasons why you wouldn’t want to piss off an Italian individual. Joining the list today is that he might break his TV in anger. Ferrari’s president Luca di Montezemolo smashed his television set after watching McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton take the F1 world title from Felipe Massa last week at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
“I broke the television, I must tell the truth,” Montezemolo told a news conference at a Ferrari event in Mugello on Sunday. Same place where Ferrari launched the new Scuderia Spider 16M. “When a television breaks it makes a terrible bang. My daughter in the other room was given an awful fright. Luckily we had another television so I was able to watch the podium ceremony, which I enjoyed.”
Felipe Massa, winner of his home grand prix was on his way to victory before Hamilton overtook Timo Glock on the final bend to finish in fifth place. Hamilton needed fifth place to win the F1 title.
