The Ferrari/F1 thing has been going on since Enzo first started racing cars. It’s brinkmanship between two organisations who, if they’re honest, aren’t entirely sure they could exist without each other. Sadly* neither of them are what they used to be.
If you’re not tifosi it’s perhaps easy to forget that Ferrari aren’t (or weren’t) a car manufacturer that goes racing to sell cars. Ferrari began as a racing team that started selling road cars to pay for going racing.
* In the esteemed view of miserable old gits like me.
