The most awaited Ferrari event of the year has finally concluded at the Mugello circuit. Finali Mondiali Ferrari 2021 took place as scheduled but still with a closed door format as last year, due to Covid restrictions, although with attendance of Media, Ferrari Fan Clubs and Ferrari employees.

On Saturday evening the awards ceremony for the European and North American Ferrari Challenge series winners took place, with the announcement of the venue for the 2022 Finali Mondiali, which will be held from 26 to 31 October at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola.
The gala evening was a chance to celebrate the extraordinary sporting results of the 2021 season, starting with the WEC world titles the Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Spa triumphs. During the evening, alongside Antonello Coletta, Head of Ferrari Attività Sportive GT, speakers included Chairman John Elkann, Chief Executive Officer Benedetto Vigna, Vice Chairman Piero Ferrari, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Enrico Galliera.
Oh yeah, Ferrari means also road supercars, FFM was also the venue chosen to unveil to the public the New Icona Series Ferrari Daytona SP3 supercar as well as the new 812 Competizione and Competizione A.
Sunday, as final act of the event, it’s Ferrari Show time! This year, introduced by the flag bearers of Castel San Barnaba, symbolising Ferrari’s bond with the local area, the Mugello public could admire the evolutions of the Formula 1 F60 and SF70-H single-seaters, driven by Giancarlo Fisichella, Andrea Bertolini and Olivier Beretta, and the 488 GTEs and 488 GT3 Evo 2020s, the stars of the WEC, GT World Challenge Europe and DTM to celebrate one of Ferrari’s most successful seasons in GT championships.
The final part of the programme was met by enthusiastic applause, with the new Ferrari Daytona SP3, escorted by two ladies-in-waiting, the 330 P4 and a 412 P. Mission accomplished, well done Ferrari! And see you next year!
