    I cannot imagine Ferrari not being a good sponsor, wow! Good for Amd just to put there name on the car is enough. Thats Huge news for Amd bravo!!!

    At the same time I can see companys like Ford for example using Intel (sponsor) similar color pattern and all just like Amd/Ferrari.

    it's not a color pattern question but a "how much would you give for put your logo on the car" question.
    on a Ferrari F1 championship it is of course more expensive than on a Ford rally car as an exemple.

    It's also a question of what perks the upper management get. I'm sure the odd VIP pitlane tour is in there .

    I used to know roughly what it cost to get your logo on one of these cars...;) Obviously, I no longer do...! It's a pretty penny, from what I recall. Anyone know?

    usually starts in the xx K's up to millions depending on size and position on the car, especially if "you" want to decide on paint/overall "look" (marketing wise),
    there will also be huge difference if your in the top 10 of teams, or if your a bottom feeder...

    but i wanna see F do something like this, as that really shows what "you" can deliver.

    yes, ferraris are fast (even some road drivers can "drive"), but outside F1 they dont really stand out, neither when it comes to showing highest performance, nor on endurance (e.g. 24h of LeMans), and even on tech only on/below the level of others (but partially caused by the fact they aren't making "soccer mom" cars..

    i have hesitated to write this about Ferrari and be fired by fan... But it is so true, they are hard to set up on track, and for 1/10 of the price you can have a real track beast and use the 9/10 left for everything around the car (50% of the victory factor are not in the car).
    Of course if you are a soccer star and need something bling bling that you can drive without driving licence when you are wasted after a party... then go Ferrari.
    (( by the way: yes i don't like those car :) ))

    It's a close secret, But Jordan GP sued Gizmondo for $1,500,000 for a similar size on a Jordan GP car back in the day they never paid for. I think we can assume a Ferrari is worth more, adjust for inflation and you can say it's safely above $2,500,000. Of course, they may provide "free" technical support and/or other stuff.

    Ever since AMD removed the green part of their logo, I haven't noticed it on Ferrari's cars :(

    This just in, new Ferrari's will all have a Threadripper based system built in to handle all self driving protocols. It'll even have road rage in Italian for you.
