Comment of the day

Whatever the reason for James Allison’s departure from Ferrari, his loss is a blow for the team:

As a Ferrari fan, i wish Allison and his children all the best and i hope that he will return even stronger after the tragedy he suffered. He showed many times that he’s a great man, not everyone will sacrifice that luxurious job even for his family.

This is a big blow for Ferrari not only from a sporting point of view, but also from a personal point of view. Allison himself is a Ferrari fan, he was part in the dream team in the early 2000’s and he accepted the mission of bringing back Ferrari to the front despite the more comfortable opportunities in the UK-based teams (McLaren, Williams, Mercedes, Red Bull).

I remember he brought me into tears after the 2015 Malaysian Grand Prix.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday to Big Galah, Solo and Holly!
