head of non-F1 motorsport, says that Ferrari is investigating entering the World Endurance Championship in the LMP1 class using a version of its 2014 Formula 1 turbocharged engine. He is clear that Ferrari’s return to factory prototype racing is not something that is going to come next year and may not happen at all.

"It is normal that Ferrari should screen all opportunities and stand at the window and look in,” said Coletta.

"That means that we cannot say Ferrari will be in LMP1, but we can also not say that Ferrari will not be in LMP1. We can also not say if our vision is for 2015, 2016 or beyond."

The changes in the WEC next season put no limit on engine layout, displacement or power. The only regulations are that factory teams must racing hybrid cars, and fuel is limited on a per lap basis. It means that the 2014 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 Formula 1 engines comply to the WEC rules with little modification.

Coletta says that Ferrari would build a full car and campaign itself.

"Either we build a car or we do not come," he said.

Ferrari has not had a factory prototype since 1973 with the 312PB, which came second in the 24 Hours of Le Mans that year. There was also the Ferrari 333SPF333 SPFerrari F333 SPItaly, 1994 > 20033 photos

from the 90s, but Ferrari only supplied the engine to that car, while Dallara created the chassis.
