Ferrari to 'push' for better rules - boss

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has revealed that his team will"push hard" for better rules to be written for Formula One.The Italian, at Fiorano over the weekend for the celebration ofFerrari's 60th anniversary, hit out at current rules including thosegoverning the Safety Car and the design of modern F1 racers."No, I do not like the rules much, for various reasons," the Spanishnewspaper Marca quoted 59-year-old Montezemolo as saying.He added: "I think it is necessary that they be changed. I do not likethe rule for the Safety Car, which turned Montreal into a game ofroulette."And I don't like the fact that races are not fought properly becauseof aerodynamic considerations, where it is so difficult to overtake."I believe that Formula One, a great international success with newand enthusiastic locations, must quickly confront these subjects andFerrari will push hard to make it happen."Montezemolo did, however, spare some praise for F1's advances in thearea of safety, after Robert Kubica amazingly escaped an horror impactin Canada without injuring himself."It has been a long and difficult battle," he explained, "after thenumerous tragedies of the past, but we must never stop pushing foreven more advances."
