Ferrari to Appeal Injunction Verdict
As announced by the Scuderia in an official statement, the prancing horse are now evaluating “whether or not to continue with this legal action already underway.” An official position on the matter is yet to be made public by the Italian manufacturer.
In addition, the Scuderia made it very clear that their decision to quit the sport at the end of the year – in case the current regulations will not be revised – still stands.
Yesterday, hours before the French Court announced the verdict, the FIA also confirmed it would make use of their right to appeal the decision, in case it would have been favorable for the prancing horse.
Referring to the potential 2010 entries – as reported by the media yesterday – a Ferrari statement hit back at the FIA for trying to bring teams like Wirth Research, Epsilon Euskadi, RML or Formtech to replace championship's big guns in F1.
“Can a world championship with teams like them – with due respect – have the same value as today's formula one, where Ferrari, the big car manufacturers and teams, who created the history of this sport, compete? Wouldn't it be more appropriate to call it Formula GP3?” rhetorically asked the Italian car maker in the statement.
