Contacted by Pitpass on Wednesday morning (11:10 GMT), Ferrari has
reiterated its position with regards Minardi request to enter its 2004
car in the forthcoming Australian GP and the three subsequent events.
Minardi boss Paul Stoddart is claiming that Ferrari has refused to
give permission for the Faenza outfit to run its 2004 cars. "Our
position is simple and clear" said a senior spokesman, "it is not up
to the teams but to the FIA to decide if a car complies to the
regulations", he said. Whatever, Stoddart is claiming, Ferrari could
give its 'approval' - for what it's worth - however it is the FIA, and
its appointed representatives, that will decide the legality of the
PS04 and whether or not it can race.
