Having lost its bid to have the 2010 rules declared invalid, Ferrari openly mocked a band of teams wanting to enter Formula One next year.

In addition to the teams already revealed by the media as clamouring for a budget-capped spot on the 2010 grid, names including Wirth Research, Epsilon Euskadi, RML and Formtech were leaked as likely to make the May 29 deadline for an official entry.

As already reported, letters from the hopeful teams formed part of the FIA's defence in the Paris hearing.

"Can a world championship with teams like them - with due respect - have the same value as today's Formula One, where Ferrari, the big car manufacturers and teams, who created the history of this sport, compete?" a statement posted by Ferrari said.

"Wouldn't it be more appropriate to call it Formula GP3?" the Maranello based marque added.
