Ferrari chief Luca di Montezemolo has made no secret of his disdain for the current technical regulations in Formula 1, and has even laid some of the responsibility for that with the sport's 82-year-old commercial chief Bernie Ecclestone.

Ferrari have not won either a drivers' or constructors' title since the 2008 season when Felipe Massa lost dramatically to Lewis Hamilton.
