Away from F1, Ferrari enjoyed one of their most successful years in recent history in 2022.

The Prancing Horse is one of the most recognisable logos all around the world, with millions of people dreaming of being able to get their hands on a Ferrari.

2022 saw the company break a number of records, selling a significant number of products over the course of the year.

To say thanks for this success, over 5,000 staff back in Maranello will receive a bonus of £12,000, having played a huge part in the success of the iconic car brand.

According to a Bloomberg report, this bonus is 12.5 percent higher than it was the year before, such was the success of Ferrari.

CEO Benedetto Vigna has expressed his gratitude for all the hard work done by the team back in Maranello, suggesting that 2023 could be even more successful.

“Data lay the foundations for an even stronger 2023, fueled by persistently high demand for our products worldwide,” he said.

“We look ahead with great confidence, encouraged by the many signs and achievements of an evolving company. The order book is very robust, covering 2023 and part of 2024 well.

“To manage the waiting lists, much more space is given to the experimental side, and there is a strong customer interest in the 296 GTB and GTS.

“We want to get back to being competitive in the F1 championship. Our goal is to win the world championship and the whole team, with Fred Vasseur who recently joined us, is working in this direction.”

The 2022 season ended poorly for the Scuderia, with a number of reliability issues and strategic mistakes costing the team a chance at their first title since 2008.

Fred Vasseur has now replaced Mattia Binotto as team principal, as the team look to change their fortunes for the upcoming season.

The Ferrari F1 car for 2023 is set to be one of the most impressive yet, with reports claiming that it could even be over a second faster than last years’ car.

With Mercedes and Red Bull also expected to be strong challengers for the title this season, Ferrari will need to cut out almost all of their mistakes from last season if they wish to stand any chance of winning either championship.
