"But I want to be a little more general... I spoke about the possibility of a third car, but I didn't say that Ferrari needs
to have three cars. I'm well aware of the objections coming from the small teams. I was talking from the point of view of the interest of F1 and of potential new entries in F1. The third car could also be helpful for young drivers, to let them grow. It's not right that a boy, who has never driven in F1, starts into a race without training and tests.
"Here's the idea... I would happily give a Ferrari
to an American, German or Australian team and let the car be managed by them. They would definitely spend less than if they had to build a car on their own from scratch. They could hand it over to a talented and strong driver, or try it with a young driver with a certain potential.
"A great rally champion like [Sebastien] Loeb would like to run in Formula 1, and it would be nice, but the teams who want to win cannot risk having drivers who are not in the best condition. I told [team principal Stefano] Domenicali to work on the possibility that some teams, like ours, could hand over cars to other teams.
"F1 needs a season of great renewal with three main objectives. Technology, because it has to become the avant-garde
to anticipate extreme and innovative technology for road cars, [but] it has to regain credibility and it needs justice to guarantee stability. Furthermore, cost is an important factor - I don't want an F1 with lower performance – and also stable rules."
