Ferrari Chairman Calls 4-Cylinder Formula 1 Engines "Pathetic"
Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo expressed disgust regarding Formula 1’s new engine regulations, slated to come into effect in 2013.
According to a report by British network Sky Sports, the sartorially impeccable Ferrari boss said that the new turbo 4-cylinder engines are “a bit pathetic” for “the top class of racing”. “
Why couldn’t we have a V6 turbo?” asked di Montezemolo. “We should not confuse affordable with cheap. If there is the slightest possibility to delay the four cylinder, I will look for it. We see a chance. We need unity.”
Speaking to German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, di Montezemolo re-affirmed that Ferrari will never offer a 4-cylinder engine in its road cars.
