What?! Ferrari mulls move from F1 to IndyCar in 2022

After reviewing its budget cap, Ferrari is seriously considering pulling out from Formula 1 and moving to IndyCar instead.

Team principal Mattia Binotto revealed in an interview that The Prancing Horse brand has both the IndyCar series and top level of the World Endurance Championship in its sights as replacement for their F1 participation after finding budget limitations in the latter series disagreeable.

Yahoo didn't quite get that story correct, unfortunately: https://www.espn.com/f1/story/_/id/2917 ... -cap-plans
In an interview with Sky Italia, team principal Mattia Binotto confirmed IndyCar and the top level of the World Endurance Championship were under consideration as parallel racing programmes alongside F1.

Yes, F1 would definitely not be F1 without Ferrari! That said, I am looking forward to a prancing horse doing the oval here at Texas Motor Speedway :-)
