Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo smashed a television set after seeing McLaren's Lewis Hamilton snatch the Formula One world title from Felipe Massa in last weekend's season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix.

"I broke the television, I must tell the truth," Montezemolo told a news conference at a Ferrari event in Mugello on Sunday.

"When a television breaks it makes a terrible bang. My daughter in the other room was given an awful fright. Luckily we had another television so I was able to watch the podium ceremony, which I enjoyed."

:laugh1:

AFCA:
Di Montezemolo on the final lap of the 2008 worldchampionship: ''I have to say the truth, I've broken the television. And since a tv makes a tremendous bang when you break it, my daughter, who was in the other room, got a great scare. Fortunately we've had another television on and so I could still see the podium ceremony which I liked.''

On Raikkonen winning the title last year and Massa losing it this year: ''Miracles, when you're able to have one, usually only happen once. I say that because last year's race was a miracle. Usually, being able to repeat that is impossible. And yet, in Brasil with Massa it was about to happen again.''

''I believe that in the history of Formula 1 we've never seen a worldchampion being decided in the final corner on the last lap of final Grand Prix. The same goes for a driver crossing the finish line as a worldchampion (to then lose it shortly after - AFCA).''

Joking towards Raikkonen: ''Is it really you, the real Raikkonen, the one in flesh and blood ? Or is it a friend of yours, a clone, one that has driven for Ferrari in the final races ? Because according to me Kimi, you were a bit tired and you've asked a friend to come and drive for a while.''

More seriously the president continued: ''No more jokes. Kimi has been the worldchampion till the last race of the championship. He's contributed to the two constructors titles. His points have been fundamental. With all due respect for Hamilton - one capable of 'touching upon' the title in his first year of Formula 1 and winning it in his second year and therefore being an exceptional driver - I'm happy with my drivers, the best driver pairing in the world.''

Massa: ''It's been a week (the week leading up to the final race) in which I've had a very strong emotion. It was an electrifying championship. It's what the sport is like, and we've fought up till the last corner. I've had great satisfaction for the affection that cam from the Brasilian and Italian fans. I was very honoured and emotional for the welcome I've had in my country and also the one I received when arriving here in Italy. This gives you an extra encouragement for the future.''

(The Brasilian visible moved by the long standing ovation he got) ''You win the championship in 18 races, not at the last corner. We cannot blame anyone but we can think about correcting our mistakes.''

Raikkonen: ''We could have won four titles in two years, instead we've collected three of them. It's still a great result in any case. With the new regulations it's hard to say what kind of championship we'll have next year, but we'll be ready to fight for the title once again.''

Domenicali: ''Let's look ahead, we have to be proud. We're already thinking about next season. That's the sport, you never stop. We will deal with the things that haven't gone well. On a personal level I felt that the whole was team close to me. That was satisfactory. When meeting all the employees at the factory their spontaneous applause 'filled me up' with happiness.''

On the drivers: ''Massa and Raikkonen are the strongest driver pairing of the field. Kimi will come back straight to his level of performance. Felipe has had a superb year, I think the races in Hungary and Brazil have formed him as a person and athlete.''

On Rossi's test: ''It will be an open test, it's the feast of 'italianity'.''

I don´t like it, when beaten people act as if they´ve won. Hamilton is the winner, McLaren have done the better job, considering the reliability of Lewis´car and the fact, that they have made almost every tactical decision the right way.

When I read "Ferrari´s pride" on that big banner and then see Kimi sitting on his car, like he´s not interested in the whole situation and irritated once again, it´s almost like Ferrari are taking the piss out of themselves.

Plus the third picture shows, how low Ferrari went since Michael´s departure, when they´re celebrating a second place in the championship like crazy.

2008: Lewis Hamilton and McLaren = winners
Ferrari and Räikkönen = losers (the constructors championship alone isn´t worth that much in public oppinion).

Ferrari celebrated has almost after every championship in 200x win or no win! even after 2005 :) ... Who said victory is necessary for celebration?.When do we really find Kimi in mood as you wanted? :laugh1: .I guess every1 has digested the fact that Hamilton is winner but that doesn't mean we should hang ourselves :p

Ferrari are not losers, they won the constructors championship. This means they had the best team and they are celebrating that. It is more important to the teams if they prove their team is the best. So they didn't win the drivers championship...Lewis won, it doesn't matter.

So Winners - Ferrari, Lewis (and Alonso)

Losers - Honda if anybody.

Also, Kimi is never interested in any PR events or anything like that. So I don't expect him to be happy, it does have something to do with he didn't win but not that much.

i my opinion, kimi was happier at mclaren - except when driving his car, most notably those reliability problems and bad luck. the opposite is for ferrari, he was happier with the car but outside of it was virtually an "i'll only talk to you if you talk to me first" kind of person. ----- just my opinion :)

+ Kubica and Vettel surely. They must be the men of the season, before Ham, Massa or Alonso.

I don't remember seeing a replay of Piquet crashing but we did see him spinning off briefly at the start, he loses it on standing water.
