Lost in transmission

A tongue-in-cheek tweet by at Le Mans by Ferrari North America PR rep Efrain Olivares – perhaps still sore after the red cars were beaten by Ford, again – sparked a new buzz of people hastily trying to confirm a future Scuderia bid for outright glory in LMP1. “You heard it here first: Townsend Bell confirms Scuderia Corsa Ferrari LMP-1 program for 2017 during Le Mans press conference,” Olivares tweeted. He was joking. Some people realised too late, running with the tweet as fact.
