Ferrari fishing for a new team boss?
When Luca di Montezemolo ominously declared Ferrari ready to "take whatever decisions are needed" in Maranello today, many commentators in Italy interpreted this to mean Stefano Domenicali will soon fall on his sword for the Scuderia's dismal start to the new season and the lackluster performance over the past couple of years.
For many, Domenicali's faults lie not just in having failed to guide the team into the new regulations competitively but also for having stayed loyal to Felipe Massa too long and for presiding over a period where Ferrari's political clout within the sport has diminished.
True or not, it is certainly not unheard of for a top man to take the hit when a team is not performing.
Now, who could step into the role of team leader for the Scuderia? Is there anyone with the gravitas to step into such a delicate situation, someone presently unemployed... perhaps, with a (fish) bone to pick with the current top dogs in the sport? hmmm.
