The excitement everyone has for Ferrari joining the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship in the Hypercar category is reaching a fever pitch. The stunning Ferrari 499P was unveiled at the end of last year, and now the driver lineup has also been announced.
For the 2023 season, six drivers will be responsible for piloting the powerful Ferrari 499P race car in the top class of WEC. Inside car number 5o will be Antonio Fuoco, Miguel Molina, and Nicklas Nielsen. Italian Antonio Fuoco is one of the most sought-after names in the endurance racing scene, while 8 Hours of Bahrain winner Miguel Molina from Spain and Danish LMP2 Pro-Am class driver Nicklas Nielsen are here to complete the lineup.
Alessandro Pier Guidi, James Calado, and Antonio Giovinazzi are the three drivers responsible for the iconic number 51 car. Italian racer Alessandro Pier Guidi and Britain’s James Calado are veterans of the LMGTE Pro class, while Italian Antonio Giovinazzi, who has been with Scuderia Ferrari since 2017, will continue as a reserve driver in 2023.
We look forward to seeing the Ferrari 499P and the talented drivers in action when the 2023 FIA WEC season kicks off at Sebring in March.
