AGE MATTERS: In London, Tom Cary reported Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo "has hit back at Bernie Ecclestone, suggesting F1's CEO is now too old to be in control of what he is saying." Ecclestone last week criticized the Italian team "for querying an overtaking move by Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel." Ecclestone said that the furore was "a complete joke." Montezemolo "has now hit back at Ecclestone personally." Speaking over the weekend, Ferrari's president criticized "the current lack of testing in F1 and lack of opportunities for younger drivers before aiming a barb at Ecclestone himself." Montezemolo said, "Since some people have used the expression 'It's a joke' in recent days, I would like to say that this is the real 'joke.' My father always taught me that you have to have respect your elders, above all when they reach the point that they can no longer control their words. So I will stop there" (TELEGRAPH, 12/3).
