Fisico started the last stage of the Mille Miglia today, at the rather early time of 7:03 am. I have not seen the photo of him finishing yet, but when he does he will get a square silvery medal with the Italian tricolour ribbon, just like Esteban Ocon here.

Fisico is on the entry list for Le Mans, which will surprise nobody.

Fisico is going to be in the Mille Miglia, which I think may be his first historic race. It starts tomorrow and continues through the weekend. Competitors go from Rome to Pescara and back. It's not a competitive race, in the sense that nobody is trying to win (the competitive element was banned from this race in 1957 after the Pope objected to the dangers of racing the event competitively), so it is now raced as a sort of 1000-mile parade, with lots of old racing cars travelling the old route but still obeying regular traffic laws.

This weekend, Fisico is in Napoli, meeting and greeting visitors to the Napoli MotorExperience (link in Italian) (something he's helped out with ever since it started in Rome 4 years ago).

The GTE-Am lap spread has been released. Fisico was the 5th-fastest driver, and the fastest Ferrari driver. Definitely showing his class as a Platinum-level driver.

Frederico's speed was also good overall (he was 13th fastest in the class, is the 4th-fastest Ferrari driver in the class out of 9, despite being a Silver-level, and two of the drivers ahead of him - Fisico and Olivier Beretta - are long-established sportscar racers with Platinum licences). The thing he should most be proud of is his consistency. The only driver I can see in the class with better consistency is Keita Sawa, and both managed to get their top 30 laps within a second of their average speed. (Fisico did not manage this, but that's expected - faster drivers tend to encounter more traffic and this affects their consistency, and Fisico in any case did later stints, which in a race with only 2 retirements, tends to mean more laps affected by traffic. The remarkable thing is that Frederico and Keita managed to be so consistent while being above-average speed).

Thomas had a tough time of it - second-slowest driver in the class (8th-fastest Ferrari driver out of 9), though he is the faster of the two Bronze-rated Ferrari drivers. He's relatively consistent for a Bronze driver, but unfortunately he was let down by a few particularly slow laps. Otherwise, he could have been the fastest Bronze-rated Ferrari driver.
