The president gets the royal tour at Maranello

Mohammed Ben Sulayem was in Maranello on Friday where the FIA president was given the royal tour of Ferrari's headquarters, factory and museum.

In a post on Twitter, Ben Sulayem thanked Ferrari's top brass - including chairman John Elkann, vice chairman Piero Ferrari, Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna and Scuderia boss Mattia Binotto - for its welcome and "fruitful discussions".

Mention of the latter inevitably triggered all sorts of insinuations and conspiracy theories from the Twitterati.

Nothing to see here folks, it's just part of the perks of the job!
