Ferrari donate ambulance to Modena hospital

Ferrari are adding to the feel-good stories in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, donating an ambulance to a hospital in Modena.

Italy is one of the worst-affected European countries with the death toll recently surpassing 10,000 and confirmed cases set to pass the 100,000 mark.

With no motorsport on the agenda for the foreseeable future, teams are adapting to the situation and using their resources and technology to help the emergency services who are under an incredible amount of strain.

Mercedes has helped develop a new breathing aid in under 100 hours to ease the immediate need for ventilators in the UK and they, along with six other UK-based Formula 1 teams are part of project called ‘Project Pitlane’ which will see them all contribute to various life-saving projects.

Ferrari are also doing their bit to help where they can throughout these uncertain times.

‘A token of recognition for the extraordinary work that doctors, nurses, and volunteers perform each day: Ferrari donated an ambulance to the @Ausl_modena to aid in combatting coronavirus,’ a tweet from the official Ferrari Twitter account read.

‘We stand united in the fight against this pandemic with the entire medical community.’
