8Star Motorsport won the title
There could be no better end to the season for Davide Rigon, who finished second in the FIA WEC Championship’s last round at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. Thanks to the talented driver’s contribution at the wheel of the Ferrari 458 GTE, the 8Star Motorsport Team secured the Teams’ title and Ferrari secured the title in the constructors’ championship.
The Vicenza-born driver’s schedule was impressive: he took a podium finish in 3 events out of four. He took a win in Shanghai, finished second in Brazil and Bahrain and finished fourth in Fuji, scoring a total amount of 24 points.
For the Ferrari’s test driver, a very intense season ends. This was a season full of commitments, as he took part in the Blancpain Endurance Series Championship, in the International GT Open and in the FIA World Endurance Championship. He took also part in the rookie test at Silverstone at the wheel of the Ferrari F138. “It was an intense year, full of commitments both on and off track. Besides working hard at the Ferrari Simulator and at the wheel of the F138, I also had the opportunity to compete in a world championship behind the wheel of very competitive cars such as the Ferrari 458”, ends the Italian driver.
