With the herculean 2023 race calendar, VistaJet, the first and only global business aviation company, continues to proudly support Ferrari in its international competitions and optimize its teams’ travel and transfer times, allowing all involved to utilize time off track further to arrive at the Formula One, FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) rounds and 24 Hours of Le Mans, and GT races in optimum condition.
Ahead of the first Grand Prix race in Bahrain, the first weekend of March, VistaJet celebrates a fifth year as Scuderia Ferrari’s partner. The long-standing partnership helps the team reach high performance through efficiency and a safe and seamless flying experience as they travel worldwide to compete in the 2023 Formula One season.
In a sport where speed and endurance are fundamental, VistaJet is delighted to support esteemed VistaJet brand ambassadors and Ferrari F1 drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz as they travel to and from racetracks. The VistaJet company logo continues to appear on the cars, kits and helmets that Leclerc and Sainz drive as they head for victory.
VistaJet announces a new partnership with Ferrari in its 499P Hypercar as Ferrari returns to the FIA WEC after 50 years. As expected, the group of drivers is a mixture of proven GT masters and ex-F1 talent, charged with getting the Prancing Horse an overall triumph, 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 intense focus required to perform under such pressure.
Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman, VistaJet, commented:
I am incredibly excited about the future. We’ve seen much growth in this important market, where more and more clients are turning to Vista as the best way to handle asset-free offerings. We recognize that Vista provides the best value and end-to-end experience. Our expanded team of over 4,000 experts are fully committed to developing the next era of innovative and advanced flying solutions across the globe. This will only strengthen Vista’s unrivalled customer offering and our position as the world’s largest on-demand provider.
All Ferrari drivers participating in international GT races and in the Prancing Horse mono-brand championship Ferrari Challenge continue to have access to a Members’ fleet of over 360 aircraft. Announced in 2021, this service helps all Ferrari international drivers enjoy a safe and seamless flying experience with VistaJet as they travel globally to compete in the races.
Benedetto Vigna, CEO, Ferrari, added:
We are pleased to renew our partnership with VistaJet as its attention to detail and tailor-made approach to meeting its client’s needs perfectly fit us. Time management is fundamental, with the Formula 1 team about to embark on a season featuring 23 Grands Prix and our 499P programme making its debut on the endurance racing scene. VistaJet and Scuderia Ferrari partnership means team personnel can fly to airports very close to the race venues and benefit from personalized take-off slots. This essential factor can translate into a competitive edge on the track.
