Maranello - Ferrari has announced the renewal of its contract with driver Gianmaria Bruni. The winner of World Endurance Championship in GT class has signed a multi-year agreement with Maranello and so will remain one of the spearheads of the GT Competition department as well as a powerful international brand ambassador.
"We are delighted to continue working with Gimmi with whom we have had a relationship of great mutual trust for many years," said Head of Ferrari's GT Competition Activities, Antonello Coletta. "It will be important having him with us next season as we have both a new car and an intense and ambitious programme whose primary aim is to return to winning form in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But right now we are focusing on this year’s main goal: retaining the GT world title.”
"It is a great joy to continue racing with Ferrari. It’s a second family to me as well as being the world’s most prestigious manufacturer,” said Bruni. "We have some major challenges coming up. In late August, we go back to the track in the WEC to try to repeat our successes of 2014. Plus we’ll also be developing the GT project for the new 488 GTB for next season which is big news because of the turbo engine.”
