ROME -- Ferrari president Luca Di Montezemolo will leave the company next month amid a disappointing season by the flagship Formula One team and before an imminent stock listing of merged parent company Fiat-Chrysler. Kyle Lowry Team USA Jersey . Montezemolo will depart on Oct. 13 following Ferraris 60th anniversary celebration of sales in the United States, a statement from Fiat-Chrysler said on Wednesday. Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne will also take on the Ferrari job in the immediate term. While Ferrari is healthy economically, the F1 team has struggled in recent years and was a long way off the leaders at last weekends home Italian Grand Prix, where there was a public spat over the teams performance. At the time, Montezemolo insisted he would stay on in the job, but Marchionne said he was "terribly upset" by the F1 teams performance, which he deemed "unacceptable." The most successful team in F1 history, Ferrari has not won a constructors title since 2008 and this season has gone from bad to worse, with drivers Fernando Alonso and Raikkonen failing to win a single race. It hasnt won the drivers title since Raikkonen was the champion in 2007. "Our mutual desire to see Ferrari achieve its true potential on the track has led to misunderstandings which became clearly visible over the last weekend," Marchionne said in a statement Wednesday. Montezemolos departure is slated for three days before the new merged Fiat-Chrysler company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Fiat controls 90 per cent of Ferrari. "Ferrari will have an important role to play within the FCA group in the upcoming (listing) on Wall Street," Montezemolo said. "This will open up a new and different phase which I feel should be spearheaded by the CEO of the group. "This is the end of an era." Montezemolo joined Ferrari four decades ago after founding father Enzo Ferrari brought him in as his assistant. After a brief period away from the company, he returned as president in 1991 and over the past 23 years the F1 team has won 14 titles -- eight constructors championships and six drivers titles (five won by Michael Schumacher and one by Kimi Raikkonen). The teams struggles had already claimed a major scalp this season, with the removal of Stefano Domenicali as team principal in April. Matters came to a head at the weekends race at Monza, when Alonso retired due to a rare mechanical problem and teammate Raikkonen struggled into a distant and uncompetitive ninth. A former chairman of Fiat, Montezemolo is also a member of the companys board of directors. But not for long. At Fiats last shareholders meeting, it emerged that Montezemolo will be left off the board of the merged company. Current chairman John Elkann said the move was made to reflect the international composition of the new automaker. Montezemolo stepped down as Fiat chairman in 2010, handing the reins to Elkann, an heir of the Agnelli family which controls 30 per cent of Fiat. "Luca and I were appointed to the Fiat board of directors on the very same day back in 2003," Marchionne said. "One year later, he became chairman and I became CEO. We worked side by side, sharing concerns, difficulties and successes. "As Chairman of Ferrari, he drove the company to a new level of technological and organizational excellence which also brought with it outstanding financial results," Marchionne added. "I want to thank Luca for all he has done for Fiat, for Ferrari and for me personally." Montezemolos mandate as president was slated to last through 2017, and it was unclear what type of economic terms he was leaving on. Montezemolo has been mentioned as a possible candidate for the presidency of struggling Alitalia, which recently joined with Etihad Airways. Montezemolo and Marchionne were slated to hold a joint news conference later Wednesday. Meanwhile, Alonso could be in for change, too. The Spaniard won two F1 titles when he was with Renault and is still considered one of the top drivers in the sport. But his contract is set to expire in 2016 and so far there has been no word of an extension. "Ive always said that I want to stay with Ferrari and if there are no big changes Ill stay for at least another two years," Alonso told Sky TV last week. "But we need to evaluate and work on maintaining this marriage in a winning manner." A Ferrari car hadnt retired for mechanical problems in 86 races and Sundays results dropped Ferrari to fourth in the constructors standings behind Williams in third.

Chris Paul USA Jersey . -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed Jerome Simpson, the former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver recently convicted on a felony drug charge. http://www.teamusaolympicsshop.us/Olympics-Harrison-Barnes-Usa-Jersey/ . Anor had not scored since getting his first two goals of the season vs. Philadelphia on March 22 but struck with laser precision from distance in the 56th and 75th minutes. Montreal (3-10-5) lost its third straight and Impact coach Frank Klopas said it literally was a case of his players not stepping up.INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts started and finished Tuesdays free agent binge by re-signing their own key players. In between, they added defensive lineman Arthur Jones -- and it may be just the start. On a busy first day of free agency for the big-spending Colts, the emphasis was clear: They need to get better on defence. "He is a rare talent at 25 years of age who is still ascending as a player," general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement announcing the deal with Davis. "We are excited to see him reach new heights in his career and help us attain our ultimate goal." For the Colts, the splashy grand entrance into free agency is becoming an annual affair. Last year, Indianapolis signed five high-priced unrestricted free agents on Day 1. On Tuesday, they focused on keeping their own players, agreeing to a two-year deal with longtime kicker Adam Vinatieri in the morning and a four-year deal with Davis in the afternoon before re-signing running back Ahmad Bradshaw. But Indy couldnt even wait that long to get started. Last Thursday, the Colts signed former Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson to a four-year deal. The next day, they re-signed punter Pat McAfee to a new five-year deal. On Monday, the Colts announced they had re-signed two more of their own free agents, defensive end Fili Moala and linebacker Justin Hickman. Then came word of Vinatieris deal, which virtually assures the best clutch kicker in league history will remain the oldest player in the league in 2014 and 2015 and could make him a Colt for life. The 41-year-old Vinatieri said other teams were interested though the Colts were his first choice. "For me, as long as my bodys feeling healthy and I can continue to kick at a high level, I dont see why I cant continue to play on. I know Morten (Andersen) played until he was 47. I think Gary (Anderson) played until he was 46. I know Im 41 but in that sense, theres a handful of years left, not just two." Davis felt much the same way. After Miami traded Davis to Indy just before the 2012 season opener, the former first-round pick emerged as the Colts top cover cornerback. Most outsiders figured that with the price of cornerbacks rising considerably after Sam Shields signed a big deal with Green Bay and Brent Grrimes signed a big deal with Miami, Davis was as good as gone if he didnt re-sign before the free agent market opened Tuesday afternoon. DeMarcus Cousins Team USA Jersey. Not so. "My agent informed me that the Colts came in and we had an offer that we accepted," Davis said. "In reality, I didnt want to leave the Colts. I listened to other teams, but I wanted to get back (to Indy), so we made it work." Financial terms of the four deals were not immediately available. Indy also signed Jones, a 6-foot-3, 315-pound defensive end, who played his first two seasons in Baltimore when Colts coach Chuck Pagano was an assistant with the Ravens. Last season, Jones started a career high 13 games, finished with a career best 53 tackles and had four sacks. Hes big enough to play inside or outside in the Colts 3-4 front, but the Colts wanted Jones for more than just versatility. "He is an outstanding producer down after down versus the run and pass," Grigson said. "Hes a guy who plays at a championship level week after week and lays it on the line every time he steps out on the field. He is a great fit for our team." Jones is expected to undergo a team physical Wednesday. Bradshaw was off to a promising start last season after recovering from a foot injury, which led to his departure from the Giants. He rushed for 186 yards and two scores before injuring his neck in Week 3 against San Francisco in September. Bradshaw never returned from that injury and finished the season on injured reserve. Whats next for a team that started the day roughly $36 million under the $133 million salary cap is anybodys guess. The Colts are still looking to solidify their offensive line, especially after releasing starting centre Samson Satele late last week to save about $4 million. They could still use another pass rusher to help NFL sacks champion Robert Mathis; are likely still seeking a receiver to help Andrew Luck; and might now need a safety after losing two-time Pro Bowler Antoine Bethea to San Francisco. But what Indianapolis does have is stability. "If there wasnt a business side in football, I would still choose to go back to the Colts," Davis said. "When you go to the Colts, man, its something you hold with you for the rest of your life."
