Ferrari boss smashed TV after Hamilton won for McLarenNovember 12th, 2008 - 5:28 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov.12 (ANI): 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,” The Sun quoted Montezemolo as telling a news conference at a Ferrari event in Mugello on Sunday.
Hamilton wept with joy after becoming the youngest-ever Formula One world champion earlier this month, and roared: I thank God for this. Hamilton pipped Brazilian Felipe Massa to the title in unbelievable fashion when he overtook German Timo Glock with just half a mile left to clinch the fifth place he needed in the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Im very emotional, Ive cried. I dont think it has hit home yet that I am the world champion. I can only thank God I managed to get past Glock and it was just amazing. I have just had the most intense race of my life, my heart is still racing. I am going to celebrate with my family. We will party together as a team, thats for sure, The Sun quoted Hamilton, 23, as saying. I had a problem with my tyres, they were beginning to grain. There was nothing I could do. I was just trying to keep the car on the track. My heart was in my mouth when I was trying to get back in front of Sebastian Vettel but fortunately there was an opportunity to get past Glock, he added. (ANI)
