    The best part of the Porsche announcement is that they will be supporting customer programs from the get go.

    Porsche has been a long time stalwart in endurance, supporting many private teams.

    I hope they will be successful with their LMDh like they did with the 956/962.

    Yep. One of the things I didn't like about the current DPi rules was the exclusivity agreements. I really think LMDh is going to be huge...Hypercar..not so much.

    Not surprising. The appeal for them is to use the F1 ICU.

    John Elkann -- Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

    So there are big discussions at the moment on the future of Formula One, and we are very much present in that conversation with the ambition and aspiration of being absolutely carbon neutral as a sport and as our activity is linked to that sport. So that is exactly the direction of travel. It will be hybrid technologies, and those hybrid technologies are very important within the V6 because that is the same capabilities that we will be using for our other motor sports activities. As you know, we announced that we will be entering the Endurance arena and also in terms of our road cars, which will have V6 hybrids. So no doubt that the thread from a technical and technological standpoint is there.

    Our customers' expectations are that we are continuously able to innovate and to be at the pinnacle of technology, and that is why we are looking ahead in a very excited era where we can achieve more with the new technologies that electrifications are providing us, and the SF90 is a perfect example of that. In terms of how will '23 look like, I think that we have answered most of the questions, and it's probably a better topic to touch in 2022 when we meet for the Capital Market Day.

    Leo turrini revealed today that the Ferrari hypercar program will be supervised by corrado lotti, a brilliant engineer coming from road car department and Formula one power unit department.
    Very promising team in the making Turrini said.

    Forza Ferrari !
