Ferrari F1 team boss spells out what makes a "true champion"
Jan 26, 2018, 9:14 AM

According to the Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne, "The true champions are also great men.

According to the Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne,

"The true champions are also great men. They are capable of making difficult decisions, of admitting their mistakes and of pushing harder than before when they get up from a fall.

"They also share their success with their colleagues.

"They are leaders, who take responsibility in every situation, winning the respect of their colleagues and their rivals alike."

He was speaking, to Gazzetta dello Sport, in the context of the Italian national football team's goalkeeper Gigi Buffon, who is celebrating his 40th birthday today.

But it's interesting nevertheless to hear him spell out his vision of what makes a true champion in sport and of what he clearly expects from those who aspire to be a champion when competing for Ferrari.
