“I am here to support Ferrari, and we are pleased with the return of Formula 1 to China.”

Regarding the upcoming derby against AC Milan, which could determine the Serie A title, Zhang declared, “I am proud of my club and the work done by the team and all the staff. The important thing is the goal we have set ourselves; the winning mentality has never been higher, and I am certain that we are very strong at the Italian level.”

Zhang also addressed the future ownership of Inter, stating, “Rumors about a change in ownership? For the past 7 years since I became president, there have always been rumors, but they have never proven true.

As long as I am president, I assure you that we will strive to add more victories.”
