Giovinazzi to make Le Mans debut as Ferrari reveals full line-up

Ferrari has revealed its GTE Pro line-ups for this year's Le Mans 24 Hours, with Sauber Formula 1 reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi and Pipo Derani joining its roster

Giovinazzi and IMSA SportsCar Championship regular Derani will join the previously confirmed Toni Vilander in the #52 AF Corse-run Ferrari 488 GTE Pro at La Sarthe.

Ferrari told Autosport last month that Giovinazzi was a candidate for a drive, and the Italian is likely to test the car for the first time next month at Monza before making his Le Mans debut.

Completing Ferrari's line-up are Daniel Serra, who partners WEC regulars James Calado and Alessandro Pier Guidi in the #51 car, and Miguel Molina, who will race alongside Sam Bird and Davide Rigon in the #71.

Spirit of Daytona IMSA racer Serra was a member of the winning Aston Martin trio in the GTE Pro class at Le Mans last year, while ex-Audi DTM driver Molina reprises the third driver role he held in the #71 in 2017.

Ferrari revealed its new-look 488 GTE in a shakedown at Fiorano last week, and both the #51 and #71 full-season WEC entries will be present for the prologue test at Paul Ricard that starts on Friday.

The #52 car is a third entry for Le Mans only, which comes in response to Ford and Porsche both entering four cars in the GTE Pro class for this year's race.
