    Come 1st GP race, it will be different car. This is absolutely nothing.

    Rumour from Reddit : Mika Salo: "I dunno if it's a new engine but they're allowed to use it to its full power. Having to use less gas was their punishment for their cheating last year.

    Yiu mean in 2019 when we were cheating not last year....so what they’re trying to say is that we couldn’t use the engine we had last year to it’s full potential because the FIA put a restraint on us to use LESS gas ( due to the 2019 incident) hence we couldn’t show our full engine power potential ?.

    I call this theory BS.
    So the SF1000 proved to be a DUD....let's hope the SF21 will be much better then its predecessor.

    Best case scenario: 3rd or 4th in the constructors championship.
    Worst case scenario: 5th or 6th in the constructors championship.

    I think we'd do much better than last year.
    But, we have to take into consideration the gains made by the Merc-powered teams (AMR & McLaren) and the strength of Alonso.

    Worst case would be 10th in the constructors championship. Don’t underestimate Ferrari’s ability to succeed in failing.

    I know
    But, realistically the worst-case scenario is finishing behind Alpha Tauri this season.

    Changes at Ferrari: "Mattia Binotto will miss several stages this year. Confirmed rumors about the team that will be presented on Friday. Laurent Mekies deputy team principal at the GPs. Inaki Rueda replaces him as Sports Director.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Do you think Mattia will be overseeing the development of the 2022 challenger?

    Hopefully, Alonso will show not just his driving skills and also his strength at demotivating an entire team. Would be good for us

    Interesting developments at the rear for Sauber. It looks much slimmer than the C39.

    Yeah, and maybe we’ll finally see that special Rory Byrne floor in the 2022 car as well as the 3D steel printed pistons in the new engine before the freeze....

    Ignore these below average at best has beens, they try too hard to stay relevant. Salo doesn't deserve any attention. What he's saying is ridiculous and it's quite sad seeing so many people here swallow such gospels as truth.

    Now on to some serious discussion, Ferrari is returning to LeMans hyperclass. Great news.

    Hypercar in LeMans and F1!!!! So the Scuderia is going to take on 2 fronts when it has'nt won a WDC or WCC title in over a decade in F1!!............yeah......uh-huh......sure, why not.

    Not to mention Porsche will join along with other heavy hitters.

    I'll watch it but I'm not gonna get my hopes up for Ferrari in the hypercar class at LeMans.

    Great news, stefa, but I hope it won't impact their F1 efforts, Ferrari need to be resurrect their F1 form before diverting attention to the LMP-Hypercar series.

    Ferrari will join in 2023 Porsche, Audi, and Toyota Gazoo Racing in the hypercar class...among others. These 3 teams are powerhouses in LeMans.....and know how to win.

    It's great Ferrari will race at LeMans but I doubt heavily that they will win given their long history out of the sport as a factory team and the teams that will be present in 2023.

    I'm being realistic.

    This program will not effect the f1. So everyone who worrying about f1 no need.

    As for jgonzalesm6 worrying about porsche. They have entered lmpdh. Which is imsa based category, and those regs, cars are pretty much dpi cars, or what we calling them lmp2.5. Hypercar class is, lets say the higher class. But, they all will be bop out at le mans to race together. The only time, at moment for 2023 ferrari will race porsche will be at le mans. What they and is building, complete different.

    Well we shall see, doom and gloom only lasts so long...When did Audi, Porsche or Toyota last win a F1 title......works both ways.

    The Lemans entry is due to F1 budget cap, staff would have to be made redundant, awkward to do so re purposed some staff to LeMans effort. Also Ferrari are practically building Hass now with more staff they have to split off from F1 due to budget cap.

    BOP is worrying with Germans about, they've gone for the cheaper slower alternative and will likely do that German thing of being manipulative and use the BOP to their advantage but with big hitters in the hypercar class and putting more money in maybe the Germans lose out this time with their dodgy politics.

    EXACTLY!!!!

    They were out of their element and have yet to return to F1. They've done well at LeMans winning numerous titles.

    Ferrari is only going to Le Mans because they simply can't fire half of their staff due to the implementation of the budget cap. The Italian law would make it tough for employers to fire them, especially in covid times.

    There is no other reason why he would stay back. As much as people like to talk trash about him, one mustn't forget that he is a genius who was heavily involved in engine building from the beginning of Schumacher's dominance. He is an extremely good engineer no matter what people say.

    no longer a part of Ferrari's plans. Confirmed by Binotto himself.
