Pierre Kaffer is set to race the second factory AF Corse Ferrari in this weekend's Le Mans 24 Hours after James Calado was declared unfit to drive following his crash in second qualifying.
The participation of Kaffer, who won the GT2 class at Le Mans with the Risi Competizione Ferrari squad in 2009, is conditional on him completing the prerequisite number of laps during the final night session in either the #51 GTE Pro AF Ferrari 458 Italia or the team's GTE Am class #60 car.
Kaffer was present at Le Mans for the launch of the new Lotus-AER P1/01 LMP1 car and has close links with the Ferrari factory.
The Swiss is one of its preferred drivers and has raced for Risi and AF, his last drive with the factory team coming at Petit Le Mans in 2011.
Calado has been ruled unfit to race by the FIA medical delegate after crashing heavily in the Porsche Curves early in the second qualifying session on Thursday.
The Briton, who finished third in last year's GP2 series, has tweeted that he is OK after the shunt.
AF has also been granted permission to change the chassis of the crashed Ferrari, which Kaffer will drive with Davide Rigon and Olivier Beretta.
