Andrea Bertolini will join full-season co-drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Pierre Kaffer in the No. 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari F458 Italia for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

“I always have nice memories of Risi Competizione because it is a really strong and professional Ferrari team,” Bertolini said.

“I know all the guys and Giuseppe for a long time, and the atmosphere is special. I will be in the car with two really strong and good friends of mine, with Giancarlo and Pierre, so we have everything on top.”

“Andrea is a successful and first-class Ferrari and Maserati driver and we are pleased to have him join us,” Risi said.

“Sebring has been a good race in the past for our team with three victories between 2007 and 2010 and several other podiums. We want to taste the champagne again in Florida.”

Bertolini competed in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season-opening 53rd Rolex 24 at Daytona in a GT Daytona class Ferrari, the primarily Brazilian No. 64 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 458 Italia GT3.

He finished fourth in GT Le Mans at Sebring last year, co-driving Krohn Racing’s Ferrari with Tracy Krohn and Nic Jonsson.

Risi as a team looks to rebound from an accident that took the team out early in last year’s race, resigning it to 11th and last in class.
