Former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo says he does not like the new colour of the Maranello team's 2019 car.

Ferrari has switched to a lightweight matte finish for its 2019 livery, while some have observed that the colour itself appears more orange than in 2018.

'I'm not convinced'

"In my opinion, the Ferrari red is sacred. It's a brand that is known all over the world. That's why I do not really like it," Montezemolo admitted to Tuttosport.

"And I'm not convinced by the story that it saves so much weight."

However, the 71-year-old said that if the new livery helps Ferrari to the title, he will overlook his criticism.

"If this leads to the long-awaited success, I would push my grief over the colour aside," said Montezemolo.
