Nicklas Nielsen will continue as an official driver for the Prancing Horse. The Dane, born in 1997, has renewed his contract with Ferrari and will continue his career in the main endurance competitions.
In the 2023 season, Nielsen took part in the FIA WEC, competing in 499P number 50, shared with Antonio Fuoco and Miguel Molina, racing in the top class of the World Endurance Championship where the crew achieved four podiums – in Sebring, Portimão, Monza and in Bahrain – and two pole positions – in the American and Le Mans rounds, finishing third in the Drivers’ standings.
In the same year, the Dane competed with the new 296 GT3 of the AF Corse - Francorchamps Motors team in the GT World Challenge Europe - Endurance Cup, winning the race in Barcelona with Alessio Rovera and Robert Shwartzman; finally taking part in some ELMS tests with the 488 GT3 Evo 2020.
“I'm very happy to have renewed my contract with Ferrari. I think we’ve had great seasons together, especially this year with the Hypercar, and I’m looking forward moving forward on this journey by continuing the development of the 499P ahead of the 2024 season,” comments Nielsen, 2018 winner of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli Europe.
Satisfaction with the renewal also emerges from the words of Antonello Coletta, Global Head of Endurance e Corse Clienti: “Nicklas is a fast, young driver who grew up in the Ferrari family where, following victory in the one-make series, he has racked up at least one international title every season until 2022, before finishing third this year in the FIA WEC Drivers’ standings. We’re proud to renew his contract”.
