YouTube co-founder, the likeable all-American Chad Hurley, is keen to team up with Ferrari for his second foray into the high stakes game of Formula One motor racing.
Hurley and Steve Chen co-founded the global internet video phenomenon in 2005 and sold out to Google for a staggering US$1.65 billion, with Hurley gaining a seat on the board.
He likes fast cars and F1 racing, and yet despite his disastrous initiation into the Formula One club with the US team USF1, which he is known to have bankrolled, he is looking at other ways of entering F1.
The news of a possible Ferrari hook up come amid the claims by Ferrari boss, Luca di Montezemolo that he would like to see a third Ferrari entry managed by an American team.
In an interview last week, Hurly answered those claims by saying, “They’d be great to work with but I don’t know when that would be, whether it would even be an option on the table”.
