Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has teased the sportscar world with suggestions that the Scuderia could be tempted to return to the prototype ranks.

The Italian was joined on stage at the annual Gestione Sportiva Christmas celebration by both the marque's 2013 F1 contender, the F138, and GT class 458 GTE which brought home a trio of titles in the FIA World Endurance Championship, and looked back fondly on the achievements in the sportscar arena.

"Once again this year, we have had great results in the world of GT racing," he noted, "I wish to congratulate Amato Ferrari and his AF Corse team: Ferrari winning a championship with a Ferrari is a nice happenstance. I think everyone at Corse Cliente, the drivers and especially the new world champion, Gimmi Bruni."
