Former Executive Director of Formula 1 Bernie Ecclestone made a rather loud statement, saying that Ferrari is back in the fight for victory in the season 2017 with Mercedes.
Honorary Chairman of the “Royal races” confirmed what was said for many years the FIA has always helped legendary Italian team.
“Nobody knows except the involved in the process, but of course, Ferrari has received assistance in the revision of the engine, said Ecclestone in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica. – Mercedes is, for example, even profitable, it’s one thing to win the championship in the fight with Sauber, but quite another to defeat a team like Ferrari. Can’t say for sure, but this is quite possible. We’ve seen this before on the example of Honda. If Mercedes do have transferred their technology in Maranello, I assure you, this step went good for them.
Help Ferrari in the framework of the technical regulations has always been profitable. Each team is important, but Ferrari – the most important of all. Max [Mosley, former FIA President] often helped Ferrari, like myself. We all wanted to win a Ferrari, it always made the season special.”
