I was pointing out that those 20,000 rev bike engines are pretty useless in much heavier cars.

I thought you drove your 599 in the Mille Miglia ???
I was merely suggesting that a high revving low capacity engine with a more powerful and innovative electric component to fill the torque is closer to F1 tech and indeed the future than anything suggested by Ferrari or Red Bull.

I Did drive the 599 but we took a 675LT as one of the support vehicles.
