Italian Matteo Malucelli has landed a Ferrari factory drive with the AF Corse team for this month's Le Mans 24 Hours.
Malucelli, who is racing for the Risi Competizione Ferrari team in the American Le Mans Series this year, will drive AF's lead GTE Pro class Ferrari 458 Italia alongside Gianmaria Bruni and Giancarlo Fisichella. The deal, which had been widely rumored, follows Malucelli's World Endurance Championship GTE Am victory with the AF-run 8Star Motorsports squad at Spa last month.
AF team boss Amato Ferrari said: "It was joint decision between us and Ferrari, but he is an AF signing. He did a good job for us at Spa and a good job for Risi in America."
Malucelli's ALMS teammate Olivier Beretta will share the second AF GTE Pro class entry with Toni Vilander and Kamui Kobayashi.
