Florida Winter Series | Scuderia Ferrari (Private Event)

The Florida Winter Series has been brought to life as a championship aimed at professional drivers looking for the best way to prepare for the competitive demands of the 2014 season. The championship will enjoy the support of the Ferrari Driver Academy and will take place in Florida over four rounds straddling the months of January and February next year.
The 15 drivers who will be admitted to take part in the Florida Winter Series will have a Tatuus FA10B at their disposal. Thanks to its technical characteristics this single-seater fulfils the performance demands required to train and fruitfully prepare for a wide range of competitions. The FA10B is built to FIA Formula 3 safety standards and offers an outstanding level of reliability.
The organisation model is “keys in the hand”: every driver will have a high-level team of engineers and mechanics available. They will ensure the best possible efficiency of the car and equality in the basic technical performance in order to showcase that of the drivers and their ability to improve the car’s behaviour.
The choice of Florida as the base for the new series is linked to the ideal conditions that the region offers in the first part of the year in terms of weather, sport and logistics. The three tracks chosen to host races are Homestead, Sebring and Palm Beach. There will be four rounds on the calendar, preceded by a collective test that is scheduled for January 22 at Homestead. Here is the provisional list: it starts at Sebring on January 25-27 then heads to Palm Beach on February 3-5 before the championship concludes at Homestead – where there will be races on two different track layouts on February 12-14 then February 17-19.  - See more at: http://formula1.ferrari.com/news/competitive-training-florida-winter-series#sthash.izPQn2R0.dpuf

The list of participants for the first Florida Winter Series is beginning to take shape. It’s a championship supported by the Ferrari Driver Academy, aimed at professional racing drivers who want to prepare as well as possible for the challenges that await them in the 2014 season.

 

Naturally enough, among the first to put their names down were drivers from the Maranello Academy, such as Lance Stroll, Antonio Fuoco and Raffaele Marciello. Jules Bianchi will also take part in one of the four events, fitting it in with his duties linked to the development of the Marussia F1 car. The event runs in Florida from 22nd January to 19th February. Also taking part in one of the races will be Swiss driver Simona De Silvestro, who is a front runner in Formula Indy.

 

Also planning to tackle the new and original way of preparing for the coming season are a handful of talented youngsters such as the winner of the Spanish F3 Open Series, Ed Jones, and drivers from the FIA European Formula 3 Championship, Dennis Van de Laar, Nicola Latifi and Louis Sa Silva. Also there will be Alex Bosak, who raced against Fuoco in Formula Renault 2.0 Alps and Leonardo Pulcini from the world of karts.

 

What makes this programme special is that the drivers are not just involved in the usual activities linked to track action, such as briefings with the engineers, free practice, qualifying and the race, but they also get to know just what makes their car tick, as the FDA’s director, Luca Baldisserri explains. “By taking part in in the Florida Winter Series, we want the drivers to increase their experience in all sectors and that, particularly for the very youngest, they start to tackle all the difficult aspects of this job. For example, we will ask them to support the mechanics as they work on assembling and dismantling their cars, thus increasing their practical mechanical knowledge. It’s the best way to understand how what they do out on track can affect the work that goes on in the pits.

 

Furthermore, in between races there will be time not only to fine tune their physical preparation in pleasant weather, but also to work with the engineers on analysing the data and, no less important, to share their experiences with drivers from different backgrounds.”
