Fisico is going to be at some sort of trade show in Fiera a week on Friday for his new sponsor.
Blancpain Endurance / Kapersky Motorsport interviews Fisico
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on November 05, 2017, 11:16:42 PM »
A Fisico interview has been published by his Blancpain team, Kapersky Motorsport. Highlights include Fisico mentioning that his first racing hero was Niki Lauda because his dad was also a fan of Niki, an explanation on why he always does certain pre-race things the same way, and a surprise answer for "Who is your best team-mate?"
IMSA Racing / 2018 Daytona 24 Hours
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on November 03, 2017, 11:37:33 PM »
It's that time of the year again! Fisico is almost certainly going to be doing the Daytona 24... ...and so is his good friend Fernando Alonso. Fernando won't be Fisico's team-mate, opting for a United Autosports prototype in hopes of overall victory and preparation for an outright win at Le Mans one day.

Fisico knows the endurance scene well, and has given some advice via a Spanish-language interview for (I'm sure, as good friends, they've said more about it to each other's faces, but we don't get to hear that bit for good reason).

Fisico has advised that Fernando would only learn from Daytona (in that, it is a good place to learn endurance racing), and that in particular traffic management and staying on the lead lap is vital for Daytona. He is also not convinced this will teach Fernando everything he needs to learn to win Le Mans (which is part of the Triple Crown Fernando seeks). This is because Le Mans is about seeking advantage across the entire race; in Daytona, anyone on the lead lap 2 hours before the end has a good chance of victory.

Finally, Fisico noted that having Fernando join the Daytona race was great for endurance racing and IMSA alike.
F1 & Ferrari / FerrariFM17 Celebration

I missed this from a few days ago, but Fisico drove at a demonstration of Ferrari cars called Ferrari FM17 from the 70 years of his marque's existence.

At some point during that day, it appears that Fisico gave one of his fans a racing glove.

Fisico Beyond Racing / Sponsorship

Fisico has a new personal sponsor. The Nice Group, which appears to do things like garage doors and car park barriers, is now part of "the family".
IMSA Racing / Re: 2017 IMSA Petit Le Mans

Autosport's full report came out on Thursday, but it was rubbish - their two-page report contained two paragrahs (one had only a single sentence) on GTLM, and not a word about the Risi. Had they anything useful to report, I'd have mentioned it on here, but sadly they do not. The free report on Italiaracing is better (link in Italian), at least they managed a sentence on "our" car!

Auto Hebdo's full report has been published (in French) (they publish on Tuesdays) but I haven't read it yet. The digital copy is usually 2 and the print version 4. They have posted YouTube videos of the whole race on their site.

Autosprint (in Italian) would also have a race review of Petit Le Mans. Their print edition is 3, and I'm not sure how much the digital version is.

I'm not sure who would have a good review in Spanish, which I know is also of interest to you.
F1 & Ferrari / How Fisico's Ferrari story began
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on October 13, 2017, 09:16:24 PM »
Fisico talks about how he came to join Ferrari in an item by Unfortuntely, it's on subscription service Prime, so I can only see a tiny amount of it at this time.
Racing / Creventic 24 Hours Series
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on October 10, 2017, 09:01:56 PM »
Risi Competizione has, according to Paul Truswell (a journalist who generally knows about these sorts of things) entered at least one Ferrari 488 into the Creventic-run 24 Hours Series. This involves seven races: a 24-hour race at Circuit of the Americas (Risi's home track), a 24-hour race in Dubai, two other 24-hour races somewhere in Europe and three 12-hour races (including Silverstone and Navarra in Spain). It remains to be seen whether Fisico is called upon to compete there.

If Fisico joins, it will be useful to note that the live timing service is at Race Results.

Thanks for the race report comments! Do you know if Autosport or something motor sport site has done their report too? Like Auto Hebdo?
Best luck for the whole team! :)
