POLL: Will Ferrari leave F1 after court failure?

Having failed in its bid to gain a court injunction against the FIA's controversial budget cap for Formula 1, Ferrari must assess its options in the wake of its threat to leave the top flight over the latest politically-charged dispute – but do you believe the Scuderia would really go so far as to pull out altogether?

Ferrari is the only team to have competed in every single season since the official inception of the world championship all the way back in 1950, but that uninterrupted participation now appears to be in danger with president Luca di Montezemolo describing the cost cap initiative as being 'fundamentally unfair and perhaps even biased', and liable to create a confusing two-tier championship of haves and have-nots.

As F1's longest-standing and most loyal entrant – and a team Max Mosley once contentiously described as being its most important to-boot – Ferrari's loss would undoubtedly be keenly felt, no matter how many times the FIA President might contend that 'the sport would survive' without two scarlet machines on the starting grid.

So what do you think will happen – will Ferrari genuinely carry through with their threat to withdraw from F1?

why do some posters still remain under he illusion that this is a battle purely between ferrari and fia. ferrari had the guts to stand up to fia, but dont forget, there are 5 other teams supporting them. lets hope they stand firm!

ferrari was wrong by threatening to quit, they should have waited, now they have backed themselves into a corner, if it a straight fight between the fia and ferrari then there can only be one winner
