Luca di Montezemolo has hailed Ferrari's victory at Le Mans.
The premier prototype class was dominated by the German marque Audi, but on the top of the podium for the leading GT category - GTE-PRO - was a Ferrari 458 Italia.
The car was fielded by the closely Ferrari-linked AF Corse team, and driven by the Ferrari test driver and former grand prix winner Giancarlo Fisichella.
Another Ferrari 458, fielded by Luxury Racing, finished second.
"It is an important victory in an important race which has always been important in the history of Ferrari," Ferrari president Montezemolo said.
