Mourinho 'tokens' for Formula 1

José Mourinho , who became Roma’s new coach on May 4, hurries his last days in London before heading to Italy. This is something that the former Real Madrid coach has taken advantage of to meet Stefano Domenicali at the Formula 1 offices.

After a dramatic race in Baku, I need some Formula 1 answers and lessons, which is why I have met his number one, Stefano Domenicali at his offices in London. Thank you friend ”, wrote José Mourinho on his social networks along with a photograph with the executive director of Formula 1.

What José Mourinho was able to see in Baku is an exciting duel between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton for the victory in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Surprisingly, the fight between the two, who are fighting for the World Cup, was null. Verstappen suffered a puncture on lap 49 that knocked him out of the race. The red flag that caused his accident caused the Azerbaijan Grand Prix to be decided in a sprint race just one lap away. It was then that Hamilton , who had in his hand to finish second and regain the lead by putting dirt in the middle of Max Verstappen, was more ambitious than necessary and tried to overtake Sergio Pérez in search of victory. The Briton went long and finished fifteenth, out of the points zone, in Baku.

Without a doubt, José Mourinho and Stefano Domenicali had a lot to comment on in their meeting. It should be noted that the Portuguese coach is passionate about Formula 1 and has witnessed three races. José Mourinho was present at the 2017 and 2019 Monaco Grand Prix. Also in 2019 he attended the race held in Silversone. Now the Portuguese returns to Italy, the cradle of Ferrari.

José Mourinho and Formula 1

Cristiano Ronaldo, whom José Mourinho had under his command at Real Madrid , has been playing in Serie A for two years. This is something that the Juventus forward has taken advantage of to visit Maranello. Cristiano Ronaldo has had Carlos Sainz and Leclerc as guides. To whom he gave two t-shirts. An especially emotional detail for the Madrilenian if one takes into account that the Portuguese is, together with Zidane , his greatest idol. However, Cristiano Ronaldo’s visit to Maranello seems to have been motivated by his intention to acquire a Ferrari Monza , an exclusive design only for regular customers whose market price is 1.6 million euros.

Domenicali’s tasks

While the talk with José Mourinho was a relaxed moment for the Formula 1 CEO, the Italian must address several issues in the coming days. Following the cancellation of the 2021 Singapore Grand Prix due to the coronavirus; various races such as those in Japan, Mexico, Brazil or Australia may also not be held. Stefano Domenicali , for his part, works so that the World Cup has 23 Grands Prix. “ Planning is even more difficult than last year. Travel and quarantine regulations are constantly changing , ”said the Formula 1 executive director.

Stefano Domenicali took the opportunity to point out that there will hardly be a new race in Germany if any of the Grand Prix mentioned above are canceled. ” Neither Nurburgring nor Hockenheim are holding talks with the organization to host substitution races if one of the calendar appointments eventually falls out.”
