Le Mans Prototype Ferrari
Will Ferrari quit F1 for 2010 and race prototypes instead?
About this creation
LMP1 Ferrari Le Mans Prototype


With the world of Formula One in disarray, the teams are considering other options if they decide to leave the sport.



Ferrari, the most prestigious brand in F1, are particularly upset with the proposed regulations for 2010 and have made it clear that they will walk away if the FIA do not modify them.



With Luca di Montezemolo, the president of Ferrari, scheduled to serve as the honorary starter for this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans race, speculation is high that Ferrari are considering building an LMP1 car to compete with the likes of Audi, Peugot, and Aston Martin. Probable 2010 or 2011 Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso will also be attending the race.



The ACO's LMP regulations offer more technical freedom than those of Formula One. For example, it is up to each team to choose between normally aspirated or forced induction engines. A variety of fuels, such as gasoline, ethanol, and diesel are allowed, as are multiple cylinder configurations.



Hybrid drive systems are being developed by some LMP teams. Formula One is expected to use a standardized KERS system next year, which would relegate all of Ferrari's KERS development to the wastebasket. Prototype racing would allow them the freedom to further improve the system, potentially enabling the transfer of the technology to their road cars.



Will we see Massa, Raikkonen, and Alonso sharing a car like this next year?


Scale: 1:16

Length: 36 studs

Special thanks to Mulsanne Mike for creating and maintaining Mulsanne's Corner, an excellent source of information for racing prototypes where I found much inspiration for this model.

Ferrari to the LMPs would be banging!!! Add a little extra challenge to Peugeot and Audi, and force Aston Martin to up its Lola P1 game. Yeah, I haven't heard anything about Ferrari doing this, but never say never. I haven't watched F1 in years so be best to see Ferrari to do exactly what Aston did. Move from GT to LMP and forget about F1.

Wow, this car looks great. The body has great lines and smoothness all around. Is there any room for a motor, or would that be too tight a squeeze, and take away from the overall shape of the car? Great work! Keep building! -Anthony

Holy...!!! That's amazing! It's so smooth and your pieces are well used here! I've never tried building a large scale Le Mans car yet, but this might give me reason to try! I'm definitely adding you as a favorite builder! Unless I already did, I don't remember ;P Keep up the great work! 10/10!

Quoting Tony Dunne Wow, this car looks great. The body has great lines and smoothness all around. Is there any room for a motor, or would that be to tight a squeeze, and take away from the overall shape of the car? Great work! Keep building! -Tony
I went with a solid model to get it done while the F1 entry row is still in the news, so I didn't attempt a motor. I may try to make the rear bodywork removable so I can add engine bay details. There should be enough room to do it if I'm clever enough :)
