I wouldn't be so sure of that considering the IndyCar project Enzo oversaw. Sure it was a bargaining chip to get the new F1 regulations changed to his liking, but the amount of effort that went into the car is certainly indicative that Enzo was willing to commit to leaving F1 for IndyCar if he didn't get his way.

This thing is from two years ago. What does that have to do with the two week old new owners in F1? It's a test mule, let go of the theories. Put some of this wasted brain power to better use like, is salted caramel the ultimate ice cream flavor? Or, strategies that could have won over that girl in high school 20 years ago because you are so much smarter now. Stuff like that.

Ferrari GT racing boss Antonello Coletta told Motorsport.com: "We are around the table with the other manufacturers, but we can't say if we are interested or not interested.

"We need to understand what is happening, but if the new category is not so expensive, a lot of manufacturers could be interested."

It also puts more pressure on liberty media... Having an alternative series they could go to if they don't like the way the rules go

A time-honoured Ferrari tradition. Remember their Indycar?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari_637

"Background
Unhappy with the impending engine regulations in Formula One (which stipulated that the engine must be a V8 configuration), Enzo Ferrari commissioned the design of an IndyCar. "

At the same time, with Audi and Porsche citing disappointment with the development of the WEC's media footprint as one of the reasons for leaving the series, one can't help but wonder how serious that threat actually is.

Ferrari was mentioned as being part of the talks on the new GTP style lmp's. Is there any fire behind this smoke?

It's Ferrari, think they're always looking where they can race. And now they can use this to threaten Liberty/FOM with leaving for if they don't get their way.

There would only be flames if a customer was willing to foot the bill like what happened with the 333SP. I wouldn't rule out such a thing happening with a new set of rules and lower costs.

Reading around, it seems Ferrari have a press conference planned for Friday. I do wonder if it has anything to do with a future in GTP or whatever the top class is called. They might not even brand it Ferrari but use another brand within FIAT. I've heard that rumor floated around.

Well the Maserati MC12 was always more GTP than it was GT1....
The 488 is also a bit older now.

Looks to be a no-go on anything Ferrari related to the top class. Endurance-info saying the the stand for Ferrari's press conference has a 488 Pista pedestal. I guess the conference is going to be related to that car and possibly tying into Ferrari's GTE titles from last year.
