17 Mar. 2023 • 7:00
Ferrari, Antonio Fuoco, Sarah Bovy and United Autosports marked the first qualifying session of the 2023 season yesterday.

50 - The gap between the pole position of the 499P and the last time Ferrari won an overall pole in the World Endurance Championship. We have to go back to 1973, and the pole that Arturo Merzario clinched at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the 312 PB.


1 - Ferrari is the first manufacturer to score a pole position in its first WEC race outside of Audi in 2012, also at Sebring, for the inaugural FIA WEC race.


7 - Ferrari is the sixth manufacturer to score a pole since the rebirth of the FIA WEC in 2012 after Audi, Toyota, Porsche, Oreca (Rebellion and Alpine) and Glickenhaus.


1 - Antonio Fuoco became yesterday the first Italian to score an overall pole position in FIA WEC.


3 - The number of pole positions scored by Sarah Bovy in FIA WEC. The Belgian driver from the Iron Dames team already achieved this feat last year at the 6 Hours of Monza and the 8 Hours of Bahrain.


11 - The number of Oreca cars in the same second in LMP2 qualifying. Only André Negrao (#35 Alpine) finished 1'310 behind Oliver Jarvis (#23 United Autosports).
