Ferrari 499P

Ferrari 499P

The car that returned Scuderia Ferrari to the pinnacle of sportscar racing, the 499P was Ferrari’s first foray into the newly created Hypercar class in the FIA World Endurance Championship, and the marque's first appearance in the elite class of endurance racing for the first time in 50 years. Managed on track by Maranello technicians and engineers with the collaboration of Racing Partner AF Corse, the team entered two cars into the competition: the #51 in the hands of Ferrari GT racers Antonio Fuoco, Miguel Molina and Nicklas Nielsen; and the #50, driven by LMGTE Pro World Champions Alessandro Pier Guidi and James Calado and Ferrari Formula 1 Reserve Driver Antonio Giovinazzi. 

The 499P would make its debut at the 1000 Miles of Sebring in 2023, establishing an early benchmark by securing pole position. Though the 499P was often outpaced by rivals Toyota in its first season, Ferrari AF Corse were the only real challengers to the Japanese team, and both cars took the championship battle to the season finale in Bahrain. The highlight of the season though came at the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans: the #50 again qualifying on Hyperpole, but it was the #51 car with Pier Guidi, Calado and Giovinazzi that would secure a victorious return to Circuit de la Sarthe after an intense and dramatic contest.

For the 2024 season, Ferrari AF Corse introduced a third yellow-liveried 499P: the #83, raced by official Ferrari drivers Yifei Ye and Robert Shwartzman, and FIA WEC LMP2 champion and Formula 1 race winner Robert Kubica. It was at Le Mans again that the 499P would shine: this time, it was Fuoco, Molina and Nielsen in the #50 who registered outright victory, claiming Ferrari’s eleventh success at the race. In an ever-increasingly competitive championship now featuring nine separate manufacturers, the team remain right in the fight for the title amongst entries from Porsche and Toyota.
