Former Alfa Romeo race driver Antonio Giovinazzi returns for a second season, while Robert Shwartzman moves up from a development driver position. This season, one of them will attend every race and work on car development in Ferrari’s new simulator.
The quartet will work alongside race drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz to improve on a 2022 season that began with great promise after Ferrari produced their first competitive car in four years, but saw Leclerc’s title challenge fade due to strategic errors and reliability failures.
Ferrari has a new team principal this year, with former Alfa Romeo and Renault boss Frederic Vasseur taking over for Mattia Binotto, who was said to have resigned in December by the team.
In the new 499P Hypercar, Giovinazzi and Fuoco will also compete for Ferrari in the world endurance championship. In the 296 GT3, Shwartzman and Rigon will compete in the GT endurance category.
