Should Ferrari quit F1 if Monza axed?

Ferrari should pull out of formula one if historic Monza is axed from the calendar.

That is the view of Roberto Maroni, the president of Lombardy, in the wake of Bernie Ecclestone's warning this week that even Monza might not be safe as he looks to scrap "a couple of races" in Europe in favour of "emerging markets".

Maroni is quoted by La Repubblica: "He (Ecclestone) thinks he's father and master of the world, but he cannot decide such a thing without even consulting with people.

"If he does (axe Monza), there would only be one thing to do -- Ferrari withdraw from the grand prix and the formula one circuit," he added.

As for whether Lombardy could intervene directly, Maroni confirmed he is "interested in any solution".
