Looming changes in the legendary company of Maranello. Only a couple of days ago I had that Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Ferrari, had announced that all its new models from 2019 will be hybrids, combining the traditional thermal engines with electric thrusters. Today Marchionne and Ferrari again in the news, and it is that we could see a single-seater electric Formula e with the “cavallino” on the front.
During a conference call explaining the data obtained in the third quarter on the New York Stock Exchange, Sergio Marchionne, was the surprise. He said that currently does not consider entering this competition single seater racing electric by its current regulations. Mid-career pilots come to the pits to change car, and this point seems to not like him at all to the CEO of Ferrari. However, within a few years, If the rules change, its participation would be possible.
“I’ve been mulling with my colleagues from Ferrari for a while”. “If that should happen, it would happen within a few years. But is possible,” he said Marchionne. In this way, it has left us clear two very important things. First that Ferrari now not is raises enter in full in this Championship, that say that is the future of the Formula 1; and second, and perhaps more important, that inside Ferrari will start to take completely in seriously them mechanical and technologies of the future.
This, along with the news of them future engines propelled by systems hybrid, us makes see that even the marks of Supercars exclusive have that rethink is what address take within few years. The future of vehicles is still quite undecided, although it is almost sure that electricity will accompany us during many years as a propulsion system, and that the heat engines will go seeing as its importance in motor decreases.
