Ferrari’s formula one team has penned an agreement with the world famous American software and computer company Microsoft.

According to a report in the Italian daily ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, the deal is for the development of technology to better manage the transfer of data between the grand prix circuits and Ferrari’s Maranello HQ.

The news follows the announcement last year that, in collaboration with the Woking based ‘McLaren Electronic Systems’, Microsoft will supply standard electronics to the entire formula one field between 2008-2010.

The world’s richest man, Bill Gates, founded Washington-based Microsoft in 1976.
