VistaJet is continuing to support Ferrari in its global competitions and optimise its teams’ travel and transfer times, allowing all involved to utilise time off track to arrive at the Formula One, FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) rounds, 24 Hours of Le Mans and GT races in optimum condition.
Ahead of the first Grand Prix race in Bahrain, taking place on the first weekend of March, VistaJet celebrated a fifth year as Scuderia Ferrari’s partner. The partnership helps the team maintain performance through a safe and seamless flying experience, as they travel around the world to compete in the 2023 Formula One season.
VistaJet is supporting Ferrari F1 drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz as they travel to and from racetracks, and the company logo continues to feature on their cars, kits and helmets.
As Ferrari returns to the FIA WEC after 50 years, VistaJet has also unveiled a new partnership with Ferrari in its 499P Hypercar. The group of drivers is a mixture of proven GT masters and ex-F1 talent, charged with bringing triumph to the Prancing Horse, including at Le Mans, for the first time in five decades. Having raced competitively with Ferrari for many years and as an official driver in the WEC, VistaJet’s founder and chairman Thomas Flohr knows the demands of racing and the focus required to perform under such pressure. “I am incredibly proud to continue supporting the most iconic and successful racing company in the world,” he says. “Innovation, technology and a focus on efficiency are core values we are glad to share with Ferrari. Racing has not only been a passion of mine for many years, but many of our clients’ too.
“I have experienced first-hand the demands and intensity of racing required to consistently deliver a winning performance. VistaJet is excited to be able to support all Ferrari drivers, from Formula One to WEC and GT races, to get where they need to be safely, in optimum condition and on time so they can focus on what is most important – the competition and performance on track.”
Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna adds: “We are pleased to renew our partnership with VistaJet as its attention to detail and tailor-made approach to meeting its clients’ needs is a perfect fit for us. With the Formula 1 team embarking on a season featuring 23 Grands Prix and our 499P programme making its debut on the endurance racing scene, time management is fundamental. The partnership with VistaJet means team personnel can fly to airports very close to the race venues and benefit from personalised take-off slots; an important factor that can translate into a competitive edge on track.”
