F1 Racing is Not in Lamborghini’s Plans
Stefano Domenicali is now CEO at Audi-owned Lamborghini
Former Ferrari F1 racing boss Stefano Domenicali, 51 anni, says Lamborghini will not be entering Formula 1 any time soon.
After losing his role at Ferrari F1 in Y 2014, Mr. Domenicali was snapped up by Volkswagen AG (PTCMKT:VLKAY)-owned Audi and subsequently made CEO of Audi-owned Lamborghini.
But as for the Italian supercar maker entering F1, Mr. Domenicali told Italian media, “I have to say this is not the priority today, because we have other priorities above this.
“We also have a system that is working really well in racing, and credit for that goes to all of the people who have chosen the sports program very well. However, you cannot think of a brand like Lamborghini without motorsport,” Mr. Domenicali added.
Mr. Domenicali worked at Ferrari for more than 20 years and he says he has no regrets about the progression of his career.
“If I look at my experience in F1, for me it was an extraordinary period that I carry inside me that is absolutely unforgettable,” he said. “I never fail to thank those who trusted me in the past. But this is part of my life now. Today, we are focused on a new challenge that I have to say is just as inspiring and beautiful, but in a different dimension.”
