Aug.1 (GMM/ Ferrari will decide soon whether it will push ahead with a Le Mans project.

A month ago, boss Stefano Domenicali did not deny speculation the Maranello based team might design a prototype for the fabled sports car scene.

“The new turbo engine for introduction in formula one next year would allow some interesting projects,” he had said.

“At the moment I cannot say more,” Domenicali told Italian newspaper La Stampa.

Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport claims Ferrari will make its decision about whether to push ahead with a LMP1 design for the 2015 Le Mans race later this year.

Correspondent Michael Schmidt said the Italian marque is “seriously considering” the option, despite not winning Le Mans since 1965.
