Maranello, 8 July –Italian motoring journalists are finding it very easy to come up with headlines when writing about the latest hot and fiery prospect from the Ferrari Driver Academy. Antonio Fuoco’s last name means “fire” in Italian, which we’ve even used in this headline. No, it’s not a repeat of “Twin Peaks,” the David Lynch TV series that was a huge hit in the Nineties. This time it relates to Antonio who has made the motor sport pundits sit up and take notice with some great performances in the Formula Renault Alps Series, which he leads, after last weekend’s fourth round in Monza.
Fuoco’s challenging task of working his way up the motor sport ranks is the subject of a series of episodes produced by Kaspersky Motorsport, a sponsor of both the driver and of Scuderia Ferrari. By watching these, one can follow Antonio’s season step by step, both on the track and away from it, as if one was right there with him.
