According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, he pointed his finger at the current regulations.

“I don't like this F1,” said the 64-year-old. “The aerodynamics count for 90 per cent and only the KERS makes developments possible that can be used in the production of road cars.”

To Mr. Montezemolo

While ferrari are busy discovering how to unlock potential of 2012 car..Red Bull maclaren or lotus might run away with the title..and the obvious answer from ferrari would be "we will be concentrating in 2013 car"

P.S.Ferrari is not the same team as it was during "Brawn Todd and Shumacher" era

@rob1 RE: LDM's comments...

i agree with LDM 100% and have been saying so for years. this aero biased formula is slowly killing f1. the formula needs to move far more towards mechanical grip and less reliant on aero. this will also improve the spectacle as less reliance on wings and aero effect will allow the cars to run closer together and overtaking will not be done in the pits or rely on the DRS gimmick!

2pac. unfortunately this info hasnt been released as yet, but as merc moved their exhausts, i would imagine that they may be one. the others could well be mid field teams as less attention was paid to their exhausting efforts.

@richard... if the mid-field teams protest the obvious use of exhaust gases to accelerate air over the rear diffuser by rbr, maclaren, sauber etc. there may be a lot more re-designing to do!

maybe this is what ferrari are counting on since they appear to be 'blowing' around the rear brake duct area and not the diffuser?
