We’ve known since February that Ferrari is working on a comeback in the premier class of Le Mans. Only the Italians remained very vague about how they saw that hypercar.
Silence that obviously left room for speculation. For example, it was suggested that Maranello would base itself on a street model, an assumption that is now being brushed aside.
Antonello Coletta, don at Ferrari’s Competizione GT department, said in an interview that Ferrari’s LMH prototype would be built according to the applicable rules. ‘Following the example of Peugeot and Toyota. And yes, that means our car will be a four-wheel drive hybrid.”
More detailed information has not yet been released to the man, the main reason being that he simply cannot give it. Ferrari’s prototype is still in a very early development stage, where there are still plenty of options in terms of design and powertrain.
It is well known that Ferrari’s WEC GTE-Pro drivers – James Calado, Alessandro Pier Guidi, Miguel Molina and Daniel Serra – have already been invited to the simulator to fine-tune things. “That doesn’t mean that that’s why our drivers will be for Le Mans. The final seats will only be handed out later.’
