Webber – F1 Needs The Red Cars On The Grid
In the wake of the Ferrari/FIA court case ruling that the FIA are fully legal in implementing the £40million budget cap, and the fact that Ferrari are almost certainly going to leave F1, Mark Webber was unhappy.
The Australian who races for Red Bull Racing who too have threatened to leave the sport said that the sport needed Ferrari.
Max Mosley tried to play down the importance of the Scuderia to F1, but as everyone knows they are one of the staple points of F1.
“I hope the sport is in reasonable shape next year in terms of teams competing,” said Webber. “There’s a lot of water to go under the bridge yet and some serious egos involved, so we’ll see.”
When Autosport asked Webber how important Ferrari is to F1, he said: “They are F1.”
“The red car has to be on the Formula 1 grid.”
