Revenues from sponsorship and branding amounted to 431 million euros. 431 million, up 10.4% on the previous year. This increase was driven by a relatively favourable Formula 1 calendar.

Italian luxury car manufacturer Ferrari has made an excellent start to the 2022 financial year. This is illustrated by the strong performance in the first quarter. In the first three months of this year, the group's turnover reached 1.18 billion euros, compared to 1.011 billion euros in the same period a year earlier.

With regard to the details of vehicle deliveries by zone, it should be noted that the Europe-Middle East-Africa region remained the car manufacturer's main market in the first few months of this year. Here, the number of cars delivered reached 1,743, an increase of 19 percent.
In the China-Hong Kong-Taiwan region, vehicle deliveries increased by 47% in Q1 of this year. In contrast, the poor performance this quarter was recorded in the Americas. Car deliveries in this region fell by 13%.
On the strength of the good results recorded since the start of the 2022 financial year, the Italian group has a solid financial outlook for the year as a whole. Thus, the luxury car manufacturer (Ferrari) is targeting good performances for this financial year.
It expects to achieve an annual turnover of around 4.8 billion euros this year. Also, the prestigious brand with the horse is expecting an Ebitda of between 1.65 billion euros and 1.70 billion euros.
