Today, Ferrari is conducting the second filming day of the 2023 Formula One season at its Fiorano circuit. Carlos Sainz will drive the SF-23 Evo for the 100 km allowed by the FIA regulations. The team has scheduled the session for the commercial shots ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix which is set to take place this weekend at the 4.318-kilometre Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.
And there might be a surprise: some shots could be taken with the 499P, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, to showcase the collective branding of various sponsors on both cars. It would be a very nice surprise confirming the integration of departments within a Ferrari that has only one ‘soul’. The Hypercar arrived at the Fiorano garage before the Formula 1 car.
The red car that will run on the Italian side’s home track will be in the Red Bull Ring configuration: in addition to the new anti-porpoising floor, the medium-load front and rear wings, and other aerodynamic details, will be visible.
Although the upcoming race will feature the second Sprint race on the 2023 Formula One calendar after Baku, Scuderia Ferrari has decided to bring a package of updates to Spielberg, accelerating the development of the SF-23 following the positive indications that emerged in the Canadian Grand Prix.
