F1 is evolving collectively as a sport. The fast lanes used to be exciting at every turn and every corner.

The Italians also suspects fans to feel a Ferrari inclination now that both Jean Todt and him are on board. As Toto Wolff has already pointed out that several times that they will want to choke the German winning streak. However, from a staunch fan’s point of view, the admin board has indulged no favourism so far.

Both Todt and I hope that he will be competitive again because he represents Italy as Lamborghini . It serves the sporting world. History is a good memory and must be a stimulus. I hope that Binotto, my dear friend, can keep the course straight” concluded the Italian.

Domenicali is a man of action. If he says he will bring back the excitement in F1, he will deliver what he promises. Jean Todt may not have the influence that Domenicali has, but he won’t get biased. All he desires is for every team to start on an equal footing and race as fiercely as the leader.
