Victory parade for Philippe Prette at Mugello

22 October 2019

Philippe Prette (Blackbird Concessionaires HK) arrives at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali in Mugello with the Trofeo Pirelli Am of the Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific already settled. His personal trophy cabinet gets a further adornment, adding to the silverware collected in 2012, 2014, 2017 and 2018.

The results from the Singapore weekend – the penultimate round of the season – brought an umpteenth triumph, mathematically sealing the title honours for the Italian. The 52-point gap over Go Max is now too wide to bridge, even with one final round in Mugello still to go. The Prette romp, which started in Melbourne, now tallies 8 victories out of 12 races, 1 runner-up spot and 1 third place. The only track on which the driver failed to make the podium was in Japan at Fuji, having to settle for 2 fourth places. Also worthy of a mention are the total of 6 pole positions and 7 fastest race laps.
