    Whether this is feasible or not, it is always interesting to hear that Ferrari is looking to enter or return to other forms of racing.


    “Ferrari feels a lot of social responsibility towards its employees,” explained Binotto, “and we want to be sure that for each of them there will be a workspace in the future.

    “For this reason we have started to evaluate alternative programs, and I confirm that we are looking at IndyCar, which is currently a very different category from ours [F1] but with a change of regulation scheduled in 2022 [introduction of hybrid engines]. We also observe the world of endurance racing and other series. We will try to make the best choice."

    Ferrari in Indycar would set the series on fire--just what is needed. If anyone can make it happen Roger can.

    How Ferrari would fit in Indycar, that's what I would like to know !

    Put a Ferrari logo on a Dalarra chassis with Honda engine perhaps ? LOL

    That's what McLaren is doing ...

    They will have to do that to keep their image and some technical freedom.
    A Hypercar would also fit in their range.

    Also Ferrari has a glorious past in endurance racing.

    I can't figure out how Indycar would make any sense for them other than leverage against F1. I think if they do anything, it would be Hypercar. I still think that is a big IF. They like to throw this tempertantrum every few years to get their way in F1.

    I wont repeat myself over here as we're already having this conversation in the F1 forum. But as you know, I hope it's true.

    I'm pretty certain concessions will be made.

    I don’t see any concessions are needed. What do you think is needed?

    A lot of theories about the Phillip Morris connection here to Penske and that power play in all of this. While Penske is no longer on the board, supposedly people who are board members to the Penske Corporation do sit on Marlboro board, so ties are still there. Interesting that the Marlboro advertising budget for Ferrari I believe now exceeds the proposed F1 budget cap.
