One thing is particularly interesting: I had always assumed that Ferrari F1 had financial support from Fiat, but according to Monty this is absolutely not the case.
The money for F1 racing comes from Ferrari and its sponsors. "We do not get a penny from Fiat. I don't think people always realise this," Montezemolo said. "For a small company like us, the achievement, is particularly impressive."
In the dog days of 1993, Ferrari made operating losses of €3.8m (£3m) on turnover of €230m. Last year, operating profits were a record €266m, on sales of €1.67bn.
That's a pretty impressive thing for Monty to put on his CV.
