Monaco, march 2017
The first Ferrari Training Lab 2017, for Ferrari’s GT pilots, took place in Monaco, organized by Med-Ex (Medical Partner Scuderia Ferrari). The program as usual began with a medical assessment of the pilots coordinated by Dr. Fred Fernando, Medical Director Scuderia Ferrari, at the Institute Monegasque de Medecin du Sport (IM2S) thanks to a partnership established with Prof. Philippe Ballerio.
Five days of medical and training program coordinated by Med-Ex staff. After the first day devoted to medical check-up, coordinated by Dr. Fred Fernando, was followed another tree days of training. Once the medical data was collected the intensive 5 day training program was ready to begin. The indoor sport activities and treatments took place at the Thermes Marins Montecarlo, coordinated by Med-Ex’s staff with the support of Mme. Christine Zoliec (General Manager of the Thermes). Thanks to Monaco’s temperate climate, the pilots were able to enjoy outdoor training sessions with professional athletes and technicians.
In this training camp the pilots engaged in the following sport activities: cycling, functional training, rowing and taekwondo. These activities have been chosen to enhance stamina, muscular strength, reaction time, coordination, flexibility and team building, all necessary components for a top driver.
Mr. Antonello Coletta, Head of Ferrari’s GT Program, was also present at the event in order to supervise the program and brief with the pilots, Olivier Beretta, Andrea Bertolini, Sam Bird, James Calado, Giancarlo Fisichella, Davide Rigon, Toni Vilander and with the newly arrived Alessandro Pier Guidi.
