comment on the article

Got a Ferrari?

Not quite good enough at driving?

Are other boys faster than you in the wet?

Then you need:

Ferrari International Assistance (FIA)


This exclusive Ferrari only membership club has many benefits. Including:

Anti overtaking assurance
Been overtaken? Feel a bit silly? Don't worry, we'll rule out the other party, even if it's embarrassingly obvious that they're faster than you

Exclusive access to a secret second lane in the pits
Just to make things a little bit easier we've arranged a private second lane just for you

Guaranteed world championship?
Had a crash? Need to win the world championship? Don't worry just limp across the track and take out your nearest championship title contender - we'll do the rest

A bit strapped? Need extra cash?
Simply get one of your team to tell someone else how you make your cars.

Bits falling off your car? Looking a bit dangerous?
At Ferrari International Assistance we operate a 'blind eye' policy just for Ferrari drivers

Been a bit silly? Taken out another driver whilst following the safety car?
It's ok, as long as you didn't hurt yourself. I mean, who are Force India anyway? And how dare they be in front of you

A bit bored? Want some extra action?
With FIA plus you can take part in a number of additional membership activities

Not sure when you might need us next?
Relax. Check out our track record. We're confident that we'll be able to make something up on the spot that will get you out of any pickle that you might find yourself in

I posted this on my own article too

As I've said all along, if there is fault it lies at the hands of the stewards. The people on here make u feel guilty if u like Ferrari. I like Massa, I hope he wins the championship, but if he gets beat by Hamilton well good luck to him.

All I'll say to this garbage is that if u read my points in this article you'll see they are correct. This article disrespects every aspect of formula one, and trys to make a mockery out of the late Enzo Ferrari's great team. I didn't initial believe in this 'fan boy' term but it is now blatently obvious that you are exactly that.

Alonso in Suzuka 2005,was penalised for the same move.

It looks like Niki Lauda hasn´t got much memory...

No red paint, no badge, no Bernie but see the following to remove all doubt regarding the origin of the "A1GP Powered by Ferrari" car:

Oh, and every car has "Powered by Ferrari" on the nose and engine cover...
