Montezemolo to stand for Italian presidency in 2013  UPDATE
Luca di Montezemolo
(GMM)  Luca di Montezemolo on Thursday clarified reports that he intends to stand for the Italian presidency in 2013.

The Ferrari president's letter to members of his political think-tank Italia Futura this week was interpreted by some as his announcement of a tilt at the top job.

"Going into politics?  No I'm with Ferrari," he clarified, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Montezemolo took the opportunity of the media event at Fiorano to announce the launch date of Ferrari's 2012 car -- 3 February.

And he also addressed rumors about Felipe Massa's future, insisting that while the Brazilian "could continue" beyond 2012, the Maranello based team is "always looking around".

Gazzetta reporter Andrea Cremonesi claimed Ferrari has "approached" drivers including Jenson Button, Nico Rosberg and Mark Webber "in recent months".

12/22/11 (GMM)  Luca di Montezemolo has announced he will be a candidate when Italians vote in the 2013 general election.

The Ferrari president has long flirted with politics and finally confirmed his ambition this week in a letter to members of his party Italiafutura.

"The second republic has failed.  We need new faces and new ideas because the next elections will be of historic importance," wrote the 64-year-old.

He signed the letter with 'Luca di Montezemolo, future president of Italy'.
