Team principal Stefano Domenicali is not denying speculation that Ferrari might enter prototype sports car racing, including the fabled Le Mans 24 hour endurance race.

The rumour first emerged mid last week, after Renault hinted that its new 1.6 litre turbo engine for Formula 1 next year could be adapted for Le Mans.

Asked if Le Mans might also be an option for Ferrari in the coming years, the Maranello based F1 team’s boss Domenicali said: “The new turbo engine for introduction in F1 next year would allow some interesting projects.

“At the moment I cannot say more,” he told Italian newspaper La Stampa. (GMM)

    And I thought they didn’t like the engine 😀

  • Forza Ferrari

    Ohhh yeah!!! Ferrari going back to Le Mans to the highest category LMP1 with full works team backing…that’d be like a dream come true!

  • Iori

    They were dead against this engine and said that it had no relevance to them!!!!!

    More hot air from their exhausts no doubt.

    Oh! and please leave LMP1 alone or you’ll want special treatment there as well as in F1.
