Ferrari opposes F1 rule change: “No shortcuts”


For FIA There is talk of revising the 2023 regulations so that F1 cars show less rigging. The bouncing of vehicles on the road causes a lot of dust and even seems to be bad for the physical condition of the drivers. Mercedes in particular is leading the march, because the top three teams are doing better. Ferrari He says he will defend himself tooth and nail against the amendment.

“We will make all our reasons legitimate,” Ferrari vice president Piero Ferrari told Italy’s Autosprint. “We will oppose any form of exploitation. For years Ferrari had an engine shortage compared to Mercedes, but we didn’t ask for favors and shortcuts. We lost honorably, working on our recovery in silence. Our opponents should do the same, don’t you think?” At least Ferrari can look back on the first half of the year with satisfaction, even if they are behind in the championship. The Italian team has put a strong car for this year.

“As a company, we can be proud of what our racing department has achieved so far,” Ferrari continues. “We are coming out of a difficult period and now we have a car that is competitive in every track. Of course there are still things to fix and details for completeness. But this Ferrari has a lot of competition. Of course, I would like to win more times, so it would be nice to be able to turn the eight poles we have so far into victories at the black and white checkered flag. That has been four so far, only half. But, we are on the right track.”
