De Silvestro, Bianchi enter Ferrari's Florida Winter Series

By

IndyCar racer Simona de Silvestro and Marussia F1 driver Jules Bianchi and will be among the entries for the first Florida Winter Series run by the Ferrari F1 team’s young driver academy.

FIA Formula 3 champion Raffaele Marciello, Formula Renault ALPS winner Antonio Fuoco, and fellow FDA member Lance Stroll will join de Silvestro who has yet to confirm her regular-season plans for next year and Bianchi in the four-round series, which starts on Jan. 22.

Ferrari, which launched the series for ex-Formula Abarth cars last month, said Bianchi would dovetail his participation with testing duties for Marussia.

The manufacturer also lists European F3 Open champion Ed Jones, fellow F3 racers Dennis Van de Laar, Nicolas Latifi and Louis Sa Silva, plus ALPS racer Alex Bozak and karter Leonardo Pulcini as participants.

The series takes place across four rounds at Homestead, West Palm Beach and Sebring between Jan. 22 and Feb. 19.
