Prost with the classic "french" t-shirt


a141abc

And the fact that he's wearing [Bugs Bunny Air Forces](https://sneakerbardetroit.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Space-Jam-Nike-Air-Force-1-Low-Hare-Release-Date-On-Feet-1.jpg) is hilarious idk why Mans got drip


YeahPerfectSayHi

> Mans got drip The GOAT's style is like no others


NDG_22

No way💀💀💀

Mime artist.


SubcooledBoiling

Mattia looks like me every time when I am eating and the waiter comes to ask how everything is going.


Firefox72

I could eat food that tastes like shit and i'd still say its great to that question lmao. To be fair i've only ever had food that i didn't like like at a restaurant 1-2 times in my life but i doubt i could bring myself to say it to the waiters face.


[deleted]

Lol yeah it's better that way. Like, what does being mean achieve? They didn't even cook it, and it's not so bad that you can get a refund. Easier to just scoff down and leave.


trash1000

Politely say what you don't like so they can relay it to the chef and he can possibly do better next time.


YeahPerfectSayHi

Also wasn't Jean Alesi arrested for trying to blow up someone's office?


Seanspeed

Jeez, all over a poorly seasoned ragu?!


carl-swagan

I recently ordered a large ribeye medium rare and it was served to me well done. I hate being that guy but I very politely sent that shit back, I'm not spending $40 to eat a steak with the consistency of a leather shoe.


zulamun

That's your full right. There's always the possibility an order got mixed up, the waiter made a mistake, the cooks made a mistake, whatever. I've worked in a restaurant as a dishwasher and a waiter for many years when I was younger, and when the food isn't what you ordered and you send it back, no one honestly really cares but the boss. Mistakes happen, but all the boss sees is an unhappy customer and 1 wasted steak. We're all still just human. Did you get the right steak eventually?


carl-swagan

Yep, they were very apologetic and made a new one right away, and the manager came out to address it and comped our dessert. I made sure to tell him that our server was great and left her a nice tip, I hate it when people blame kitchen issues on the waitstaff.


Seanspeed

>and when the food isn't what you ordered and you send it back, no one honestly really cares but the boss. Oh the boss more than anyone should want to ensure customers leave happy. Restaurants rely heavily on high margins and repeat business. So if you have to toss a dish and make another, you aren't necessarily taking a loss on that at all, just not gonna make as much. It's far more important that the customer goes away satisfied and is willing to come back or recommend to others(and at the very least, wont tell others they had a bad experience). Seriously, just be polite and easy going with the staff, and they're generally all too happy to help. The manager will generally be more annoyed at staff than customers if there's a lot of problems with orders.


KrainerWurst

Well being able to deliver difficult/unpleasant info is definitely useful. All depends on how you do it.


Ding_Cheese

yep - just dont order that again, or I don't go back. If it's a place I frequent I prefer to be on good terms with the cooking/wait staff... if then something is off the wall bad you can be honest with them without getting pubes mixed in with your upgraded complimentary 'we're sorry' food.


cth777

I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had food at a real restaurant that was truly prepared badly. Maybe a dish I wasn’t a fan of, but just because I didn’t like it in general


RacingOrPingPong

Feels like Gino has been around forever.


deoid000

The one beside prost..? Who is he .. I've seen him quite a lot with ferrari


gregdrou

He is also very visible in the early 2008 celebrations 🙃


mac3687

Yeah I believe the story is he was working at a hotel in Canada during a race weekend in the early 2000's and happened to be fluent in both English and Italian, and the Ferrari team was staying in the hotel he worked at. He ended up helping them out as a translator and was offered a full time job. Again I either believe that's the story or I'm really high.

Here ya go. https://www.sportsnet.ca/auto-racing/f1-cdn-gp-rosato-0/


mac3687

Hey, thank you for posting this!


Skylair13

Part-time since 1991, Full-time since 1997.


DrKrFfXx

That Ferrari guy that's not Binotto is eternal.


According-2-Me

He looks like he should be Zak Brown’s brother or something.


NotMetallica

Gino Rosato


PaleBlueDave

That's an aggressively French t-shirt Prost is wearing.


HamRove

He mimes for beer money.


General_Apathy_II

He's just a Vulfpeck fan.


guntanksinspace

Man likes the FUNKY DUCK


General_Apathy_II

He's on the scene.


SnakeCase_camel_case

THE FUNKY DUCK


Powdercum

Close to a [Breton shirt](https://bretonshirt.com/products/bateau-mariniere). Only the beret, cigarette, and French bread are missing.


Seanspeed

Did you just basically steal this comment from a certain other forum?


PaleBlueDave

Yep


Seanspeed

Why, though? I dont get it. It's so lame.


stubbysquidd

Who is the other guy with them, i swear he is one of the people i more see everytine i see anything ferrari related.


KingSchumi

Gino Rosato. He’s from Quebec and has been with the team since the Schumi years at least (although he briefly left for Caterham at some point).


NBX6

imagine leaving Ferrari for Caterham lmao


wagyukeef

Outreach gap-year lol


RiFLE_

He looks like he's smoking a pipe lmao


Cobretti18

Gino Rosato… he’s worked full time for Ferrari since 1997 except from a 3/4 year period working for Lotus Group. He actually started working part time with Ferrari in 1991 because he was the only Italian speaking staff member of the hotel that the team were staying at for the Canadian GP so got to assist them that weekend. I’m not exactly sure what his job title is but whatever it is it seems like a sweet gig


SubcooledBoiling

>I’m not exactly sure what his job title is but whatever it is it seems like a sweet gig There's always this one guy who has been in the company forever that no one knows what he does so everyone just assumes he doesn't do anything. But it turns out he's the sole maintainer of some legacy software/code that the entire company's operation is dependent on and no one else other than him knows how to use it.


Stigmacher

> Gino Rosato Godfather to Kimi's first son too. Though probably best remembered for [this moment during *The Glock*](https://youtu.be/XHSeGou-pCI?t=122).


gregdrou

"Your favorite Brazilian GP" 😭😭😭


[deleted]

Guy Fieri. Has a cooking show.


Powdercum

Yes, we all saw the race in Austria.


[deleted]

Is that the guy from the Schumi years? Long time no see. Where in the team is he now?


Juzt_Tim

He's actually team principal, seems crazy


pearsonspectorlitt

Metal cutlery and paper plate the table dressings of champions


Tysons_Face

Binotto looks dangerously close to revealing the Ferrari master plan


Maria_in_the_Middle

Legends


arletha5

Driver line up 2023 confirmed. Ferrari will built them a rocking chair. Errr, rocket ship.


1234iamfer

I would assume a professeur would eat his legumes.


ck01ok

Prost is a living legend. Respect.


ForAllTimeAlways

Binotto is mad because prost is eating pasta with a knife


kitchen_masturbator

Jean Alesi raced against Fernando Alonso in F1 (funnily enough, Alesi was racing for Prost's own team and he got a few points too). That still blows my mind. Alesi was still genuinely quick in his last season.


Takis12

The stories those guys could tell…decades of F1 experience combined….


spiritanimalofcousy

So many stories of failure indeed


plmatt91

Binotto’s crazy ass is thinking, should I replace the newer generation with the older generation?


BlurryTextures

I love Gino that guy is totally living his best life. He is godfather of Kimi's kid!


AshKetchumDaJobber

Looks like they’re having a blast.


Nikimoocow1

Two great Ferrari champions! Oh wait…. All kidding aside the GOAT and Gilles, mark 2.


AggrOHMYGOD

Very jarring to see Alain sitting with Ferrari. Can’t help but feel like Alpine fucked up, the man is incredibly knowledgeable. It would be like merc departing from Lewis after Lewis retires.


Nikimoocow1

Yup. Renault and Alain always have had an awkward relationship since 1983 or so, whatever the reason. Mclaren would have a greater pull, but the whole Senna/Prost rivalry makes it weird. Until the come up with the Mclaren Prost… he did win 3 titles with them (as did Ayrton).


404merrinessnotfound

Dude some renault guys burnt his car down back in the day, it's not surprising that they had an awkward relationship


TunerJoe

After Alain retired in 1993 he went back to McLaren to be an advisor I believe. You can see him in 1994-1996 races on the McLaren pit wall.


Nikimoocow1

Ron wanted him to drive for McLaren in 94-95 area.


TunerJoe

I didn't know about that


JohnMayerSpecial

Rumor has it that Prost said the food tasted like it was from a truck and was kicked out of Ferrari


NotLawReview

Wouldn't have guessed Prost was a Nike Air Force 1 kinda guy


According-Switch-708

Alain Prost to replace Sainz midseason? Subscribe!


IWLFQu2

Is this at IKEA?


slimejumper

ferrari and prost gp, two teams that excel at weird team politics


Dudensen

Why is Prost at Ferrari's paddock and now even eating together? When Prost was driving for Ferrari he publicly criticized the car and then Ferrari fired him. There should be bad blood between them.


NearSun

People are much more forgiving once they grow older


Nikimoocow1

Niki Lauda was an advisor at Ferrari in the mid 90’s. The bad blood there was deep. With Prost they just fired the only guy who could save them…. Until Michael and Ross and Jean came a calling.


Daed_Wings

I think Prost even attended Ferrari's anniversary event in Milan(?) last year. Some also mentioned in another post of him and Alesi that there may be some bad blood with Alpine/Renault when he left his role. So i guess him and Ferrari are chill with each other nowadays.


goldenkicksbook

His problem was more with Cesare Fiorio, the team principal at the time.


Driver9211

Who is that Bob type guy beside Prost?


JadeNrdn

Gino Rosato, a Canadian Ferrari Formula 1 stable multipurpose. Rosato started working for Ferrari part-time in 1991 and full-time in 1997. Rosato had been the Executive Vice President of Lotus Group since 2009. He returned to Ferrari in 2014. Rosato is known as a good friend of Kimi Räikkönen and the godfather of his son Robin. Rosato is somewhat infamous for being the Ferrari mechanic seen in center frame, fist pumping, during Ferrari's premature celebrations for Felipe Massa during the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix.

What is a stable multipurpose?


Potential_Delay4663

Binotto always looks fucking miserable


f1_spelt_as_bot

Bi**n**otto

My b


dalyscallister

Does Binotto speak French? If not, that could explain how defeated looks.


Philippe-R

Binotto studied in Lausanne (I believe he's born there too). He speaks a perfect french.


dalyscallister

Must have been a colourful meal, with four very different accents.


Philippe-R

Unfortunately Mattia doesn't speak with a real accent. OTOH, Alesi and Rosato must have delivered...


The-Great--Cornholio

They were speaking italian probably.


n5vBill

Yes [he does](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-3dRQGziA8)


Arrrmatey4510

so yea this is how we gonna defeat Leglerg from winning the wdc


According-2-Me

Has Binotto been losing weight? He looks thinner in this photo…


f1_spelt_as_bot

Bi**n**o**tt**o


According-2-Me

Good bot


DecentTop1084

Mattia is just a Harold Lloyd character


The-Great--Cornholio

Mattia reminds me Igor Spengler (Ghostbusters)


Tom_piddle

Gino Rosato is just a curious character. Some how he is always in the middle of Ferrari action, gets on TV often but doesn’t have a ‘role’. Can’t think of another team with someone like this.


rehad12

Great photo!


CMDRJohnCasey

Jean went for the wine, as a good Avignonais


nocarpets

Paper fucking plates. WTF. And metal silverware with that is double wtf. Can they not find a person to wash the plates, and even if they can't, just use plastic disposable plates. But paper plates? WTF man, WTF
