A spat has emerged between Italy’s motor racing sanctioning body, and the boss of Italian Grand Prix venue Monza.

The existing head of the circuit’s operator Sias, Enrico Ferrari, has stepped down amid an investigation into his behaviour.

His successor is Fabrizio Turci, but it is clear that the president of the Automobile Club d’Italia – Angelo Sticchi Damiani – is no admirer.

“I am concerned about the grand prix of Italy,” he is quoted.

“I do not think Turci has the experience to handle the organisation of this event,” Sticci Damiani is quoted by Italian media.
