what ever happened to NART, an american team that ran ferraris, and if memory serves me right, even at times in f1?
but i see tha crash talks about the ferrari website, that slated stefan. it has never been revealed if there were in fact containers shipped to bahrain, and if they were, what exactly was in them, as toyota have never stated that they actually provided stefan with spares, parts etc.

It would be nice to see NART back in some sort of shape. If it was up to me, I would do it like the old times, a few semi-official blue Ferraris on the 12h of Sebring, 24h of Le Mans, etc.

If memory serves me right richard, Enzo entered a few F1 races as NART because he was upset with Italy's racing body over some homologation dispute. It wasn't really NART, just regular Ferrari forgoing registry as an Italian team for a few races

Hey Obama you listening? Have govt. motors build us an F1 car. What the hell its our tax dollars. They might even have some left over indy engines we could trick out, or at least learn from. We got a new track being built might as well build a car too. :p :)

Ferrari wants 3rd car, give them 4th as well and let them have two teams. They could afford it. Then they could have Alonso Massa Kubica and Rossi. Happiness all round.

Carcrazed and Richard are correct, and I know because I have a painting of the event on my office wall.

Yet another example of Ferrari having a hissy fit to get their own way, although not quite on the level of the rules veto thing.

If Luca really wants to run a third car why did he sign the 2010 Concorde Agreement which prohibits it? He (or Stefano on his behalf) signed up last July for two car teams only.

He's no longer chairman of FIAT or Cofindustria (it seems both got tired of him) so Ferrari and F1 are the only toys he has left. Yet he does not seem to understand how either works.

Ferrari has been in decline ever since Todt left and the more Luca gets involved the quicker the decline will be. The man is hopeless. He should retire to his yacht with his friend Flavio.
