Sure, Ferrari has factory teams playing the endurance game, but, like we said, we’re talking LMP1 here. Earlier this year, rumors of a Ferrari return were reignited, but this is one of the few topics that sees Italian people being completely silent.
Should the Horse be Prancing back to Le Mans, don’t expect the move to take place next year. Ferrari has previously stated that the new regulations are appealing to them and that they could return, but the rules are set to expire in 2016 and the investment wouldn’t be worth it.
As we reported, Ferrari is keen to cut its CO2 emissions and since their street car turbo return has already happened, the endurance play would help them with achieving this goal.
As for what this would mean for Ferrari’s F1 program, only the racing gods must know. Some helmet users said the Italian’s return to Le Mans would be synonym to a pause in their F1 quest. Nonetheless, Ferrari currently has an uninterrupted F1 history, something you really don't want to break.
We think we may have heard a giggle over in Zuffenhausen.
