Ferrari threatens to quit F1

The news today is Ferrari's threat to quit F1 over the standardize engine.
"The use of same engines would deprive F1 of its competition and technological development,"
Translation we might actually have to compete with more than one team to win every GP of the season unless there's an act of God[rain or a safety car]. Just think how much better advertising it'll be to actually defeat some competent rivals. Like say Toyota in NASCAR. If you beat garbage well then you're not much better than garbage.

Considering the global economic climate I wonder if this will be the pretext for Ferrari to quit the sport in a huff instead of announcing that they can no longer afford it.
