“On paper, it’s an interesting project,” Jean Todt admitted, “We, at Ferrari, need to understand more, that’s why I’ve asked some of my people from the road car division to understand a bit more, because it’s something which will be of interest to us only if we have strong evidence that it’s something which can be linked to a road car use.”

“For us, it’s very important, the synergy between F1 and GT road cars. If it’s only something you can use in F1, and not in road cars, we will not be interested.”

Like several other team bosses, Todt is keen to see the freeze brought forward to cover 2007, to avoid expenditure on development which is then thrown away. “I would more than support, I would suggest it,” he said, “It will be a nonsense to spend a huge amount of money to develop the engine for the end of the season, for next year’s season, and then to come back. Saying that, in F1, it can happen.”
