With the budget cap on the way, there is a lot of work to be done for large teams with large costs on personnel. However, Piero Ferrari has a solution for the brand that was founded by his father Enzo.
According to the son of the legendary Enzo Ferrari, the Italian brand is in favour of employing the staff who would otherwise have to be fired in Maranello. It may not be under the heading of the Formula 1 project, but Piero suggests a trip to another class.
”I love Indianapolis, when I was a little boy I saw Gianpaolo Dalarra take his first victory in the Indy 500. Ferrari has already participated with Alberto Ascari in the Indy 500 and that could be an option now. In the 80’s there were already plans, but then they never got off the ground. I think my father would be very proud if a Ferrari could win the Indy 500,” said Ferrari to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
In Formula 1 from 2021 Ferrari will choose a new driver alongside Carlos Sainz and although Piero is a big fan of rally racing, he has never met Carlos’ father. ”His father is a great rally champion, but I have never met him. However, I think that the meeting will take place in 2021”, concludes Piero.
