Ferrari once again adds to its roster of trophies as it bagged this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship Constructor’s Title.  The WEC Constructor’s Championship was won at the 6 Hours of Shanghai last weekend.

The title came courtesy of a pair of AF Corse Ferrari GTE 488s race cars that came in third and sixth, respectively. The third place GTE 488s was driven by Alexander Pier Guidi and James Calado, while the sixth finisher was piloted by Davide Rigon and Sam Bird.

The latest Constructor’s trophy is Ferrari’s fifth, adding to its 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016 victories. It is likewise the marque’s 24th overall title sanctioned by the FIA. The 2017 Constructor’s Championship trophy joins the other World manufacturers’ for Makes trophies, along with those from the International GT Championships, Prototypes titles, FIA GT manufacturers’ victories, and the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup.

While the Constructor’s Championship has already been decided, Ferrari could still bag more trophies as its drivers hold a points’ advantage over other teams in the Driver’s Championship race. This year’s final WEC race will be held in Bahrain on 17 and 18 November.
