A Power Shift at Ferrari

Source: WSJ

This is an excellent WSJ write-up on Ferrari's long-time chairman Luca di Montezomolo's departure. In his typically eloquent and unique writing style, Dan Neil adds a lot of dimensions and food for thought to the story. It's a pivotal event in Ferrari's history that the direct link to Enzo Ferrari is now broken. Di Montezomolo leaves the Ferrari business in great shape except for the F1 team. As much as I love Italian cars, I think his advice for the new Ferrari chairman should be to hire... a British F1 team principal and a German driver.
