"This year is the result of perfect teamwork wich reflect not only on the Gestione Sportiva but on all of Ferrari and, of corse, our sponsors and technical partners who have supported us on the long road which has led to a fourth consecutive Constructors' Championship and a third consecutive Drivers' title. A special word of thanks to the drivers and especially MS for an incredibile performance," said Montezemolo
"This has been an incredibile year because we have been up against the biggest car companies in the world and we have beaten them in terms of technology, organization and reliability and this is caused for great satisfaction. We are proud to have been able to continue working with determination, investing and improving even after we won the Constructors' title in 1999. Now we have reached what has truly been a record year which will probably be impossibile to repeat".
