Following Sergio Marchionne’s threats to quit F1, Formula E boss Alejandro Agag does not see Ferrari racing in the all-electric series any time soon.
Italian-Canadian executive and Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne voiced his concerns about Formula 1’s recently tabled 2021 power unit proposal, disapproving of the potential inclusion of standardised parts, a concept which could entice the Maranello team to quit Grand Prix racing and race elsewhere, according to the manufacturer’s chairman.
Asked if Scuderia Ferrari could one day head to Formula E, Alejandro Agag told El Confidencial: “It would be fantastic. But I think, for now, it would be a very big cultural change for them. Sergio Marchionne has said he is looking at it, but not for Ferrari but for Maserati perhaps,” he added, as reported El Confidencial earlier today – “But I have never spoken to him. I don’t think it’s imminent. I have seen the new Tesla Roadster that is 0-100kph in 1.9 seconds, and nothing like that from Ferrari.” – the Formula E boss concluded.
