As Ferrari returns to the World Endurance Championship after 50 years, VistaJet unveils a new partnership in its Hypercar

VistaJet is expanding its partnership with Ferrari.

It continues to support the automaker in its global competitions and optimize its teams’ travel and transfer times via access to its fleet of private jets.

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 to reach high performance through efficiency and a safe and seamless flying experience as they travel around the world to compete in the 2023 Formula One Season.

Ferrari F1 drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz and VistaJet brand ambassadors will utilize the private jet service as they travel to and from racetracks.

The VistaJet company logo continues to feature on the cars, kits, and helmets driven by Leclerc and Sainz as they head for victory.

As Ferrari returns to the FIA WEC after 50 years, VistaJet also unveils a brand-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 getting the Prancing Horse an overall triumph, including at Le Mans, for the first time in five decades.

Thomas Flohr

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.

In making the announcement, Flohr says, “I am incredibly proud to continue supporting the most iconic and successful racing company in the world. 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 and in optimum condition and time so they can focus on what is the most important — the competition and performance on track.”

VistaJet access

All Ferrari drivers participating in international GT races and in the Prancing Horse mono-brand championship Ferrari Challenge continue to have access to Vista’s Members’ fleet of over 360 aircraft.

The company has been expanding with its 2022 acquisitions of Jet Edge and Air Hamburg. It has also been adding Challenger 350s and Global 7500s, new from Bombardier.

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.

Ferrari’s 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 about to embark on a season featuring 23 Grands Prix and our 499P program 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 personalized take-off slots. This important factor can translate into a competitive edge on track.”
