Reports are saying that Maserati is abandoning the MC12 for next year because there are too many rules being forced on the car by the FIA for them to comply with before March '05. That's reappy too bad because the MC12 is such a great looking car and really seemed to come along in the final races that it competed in. I would have loved to see that thing in action, but it looks like it's dead in the water. Quite sad. Hope to hear of better news about the project in the forthcomming months.
