Ferrari boss the next Italian PM?

When you’re Luca Di Montezemolo life is pretty super. You are the boss of Ferrari, presumably ridiculously rich and about as respected in your home country as the Pope.

When you’re Luca Di Montezemolo life is pretty super. You are the boss of Ferrari, presumably ridiculously rich and about as respected in your home country as the Pope. You’re a living legend, but what happens when you just get bored of it all? What is there to do? Well, how about becoming the next Prime Minister of Italy? Sure. That works.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Di Montezemolo is planning on running as a candidate to replace Silvio Berlusconi in 2013.
 
The 64-year-old wrote that: "the next elections will be of historic importance," and so "the first thing that we are going to propose is the sale of the State's assets and a reduction of the public debut."

"There is no way that the Italians want to see the same old faces, the politicians who have allowed the situation to become the way it is. That is why the next elections will not be a matter of routine," he continued.

"In 2012, Italia Futura will work hard to achieve this by promoting the new ideas and new faces that Italy deserves. We will start working even harder at a grassroots level to create a strong, united network throughout Italy by June," Montezemolo added.

So, the boss of Ferrari as the PM? Sounds about right.
