Ferrari makes a new push for three car teams in F1
Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has made a new push for F1 to introduce three car teams and revealed the name of two American outfits he would like to see run a third Ferrari on behalf of the Scuderia.

Di Montezemolo has made no secret of his desire to see the main teams running three cars having been an outspoken critic of the three newcomers on the grid this year – arguing that it made more sense to have extra competitive cars on the grid rather than a team that 'cannot even do GP2'.

The Italian magazine Autosprint has now revealed that di Montezemolo is keen to see a third Ferrari on the grid for the 2013 season and would like it to be run by an American team.

"It would be nice to see a third Ferrari fielded perhaps by a private American team,” he said. “I'm thinking of a team like Ganassi or Penske (being suitable). On the question of a third car, we are determined.

"Bernie Ecclestone agrees and Frank Williams, who was against it before, understands now. Don't you think it would be nice to see a team like Penske or Ganassi deploy a Ferrari with an American driver?"

di Montezemolo used Lotus driver Jarno Trulli as an example of someone who would benefit from three car teams.

"It is disheartening to see someone like Trulli many seconds behind,” he said. “Think what Jarno could do with a Ferrari given to his team?"

Call me crazy, but I kind of like the idea. There are to many good drivers and not enough top teams to go around. Kubica deserves to be in something better than a Renualt, Kovalainen is way better than his Lotus and Raikkonen can't even find a drive.
