needs courage to take difficult and very agonising decisions,” said Domenicali.

people that I feel very close to. With all my heart, I thank all the men and
women in the team, the drivers and the partners for the wonderful relationship
we have enjoyed over all these years. I hope that very soon, Ferrari will be
back where it deserves to be. My final words of thanks go to our President, for
having always supported me and to all our fans. I only regret that we have been
unable to harvest what we worked so hard to sow in recent years.”
