GP Week : Issue 167
Lewis Hamilton’s future might be the hot topic on the F1 agenda at the moment, but Ferrari is never far from the silly season spotlight. With Felipe Massa’s future not yet decided, the rumour mill continues to spin with stories naming his possible replacement in the red race suit. While Sergio Perez delivered a stand-out performance in Monza, passing Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso for second place in the closing stages of the Italian Grand Prix, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo does not think the young Mexican is yet ready for a race drive with the team. “Next season is too early,” di Montezemolo told SkySports. “I'm very pleased for him because first of all it showed that our choice when we picked up [Perez] as a young driver was good. Then it is thanks to Sauber, thanks to the Ferrari Academy, he grows up. To put a young guy to Ferrari with the pressure of Ferrari, you need more experience.” The latest name to appear seriously in the frame for a job at Maranello next year is that of Caterham’s Heikki Kovalainen. The Finnish driver has impressed with his consistent performances at the back of the field over the past three years, and his development feedback is highly praised. Adding fuel to the Kovalainen rumours this week was the news that the Finnish driver’s management had been summoned to Maranelllo in the wake of the Italian Grand Prix. Finnish broadcaster MTV3 is reporting that Kovalainen’s representatives from IMG Worldwide would be meeting with Ferrari bosses at the team’s headquarters next week. In other Ferrari news, F1 technical illustrator Giorgio Piola has revealed that the DRS on the F2012 is operated using a foot pedal. According to Piola, the Ferrari drivers operate their DRS via a switch to the left of the brake pedal, rather than via a steering wheel button as used by the other teams.
