Luca says Ferrari will never be the greenest and thats fair enough, but have no green at all is just plain stupid. In the next 10 years expect an ailing FIAT to sell its prized possession to alleviate its woes. And once that happens, Ferrari will becaome a cash cow.....nothing ever lasts for ever.
Ferrari will be incorporating some sort of hybrid technology into their future models. But only to supplement the normal ICE, not take their place.
Unfortunately it is Iternationaly agreed future vehicle regulations on emmisions that will force Ferrari and all other sports and super car manufacturers to look at Hybrid and pure electric much harder than through the narrow focus blinkers they are all using at present.
At the moment Ferrari is just playing at the technology with no idea just how hard the new world is going to hit them.
F1 is being used to delay this inevitable change, in fact the demands of the manufacturers through FOTA to keep the public in the dark, is slowly becoming the sole purpose of F1.
