Dang. That is one of the best posts I’ve read in sometime @Prisoner Monkeys
I sincerely hope some people from the teams troll on here and that someone with some clout inside the scuderia stumbles upon this.
Perez is clearly the best choice, perhaps as you have suggested the only. With many expecting them to pick him up, they would be crazy not too. Do that, and stop letting their tech guys go or get scalped by their rivals and they may finally produce a car Alonso can win with again. I know he has that long term contract, but he won’t put up with years of mediocrity and if they want to retain him, they need to up their game.
The pit crew being on top in Melbourne is a hopeful sign of change for the rest of the organization.
As far as Montezemolo, I think the day he makes the full time switch to Italian politics will come sooner rather than later. He has done great things for Ferrari in the past, but it’s time for someone new to take the reigns on the prancing horse.
