In the first Ferrari 458 which bears the #51, the GT World Champion Gianmaria Bruni will run together with Toni Vilander. The two drivers have been long-time team mates, winning the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans, together with Giancarlo Fisichella. The 458 #71 will feature the Scuderia Ferrari test driver Davide Rigon and the Englishman James Calado; the latter is a new entry for AF Corse who will fly the Ferrari flag with the Italian team in his home race in Silverstone.

No less than two 458s are entered in the GTE Am category with highly rated crews: the car number #61 will be in the hands of Luis Perez Companc, Marco Cioci and Mirko Venturi while in the Ferrari #81 will race Steve Wyatt, Michele Rugolo and Sam Bird.

AF Corse will also manage the technical assistance of the 8 Star Motorsports Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 #90 and the trio of Enzo Potolicchio, Gianluca Roda and Paolo Ruberti will lined up to win the GTE Am title.

Before the kick of the seasons teams and drivers will first take to the track today and tomorrow with the official collective tests at the Paul Ricard Circuit for the Prologue of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
