Montezemolo will attend the Bahrain Grand Prix

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo will attend the Bahrain Grand Prix this weekend as his team chases its first points of the season.

The reigning constructors' champion has had a torrid start to the 2009 season, having failed to finish in the top eight of any of the races held so far this season.

And in a bid to show solidarity with the team, di Montezemolo will travel to Bahrain on Sunday to attend his first race of the season.

A Ferrari spokesman said: "He wants to be here with the team in this difficult moment."
