Somehow, I very much doubt we'll ever see a roadcar-based LMH from any manufacturer.
I guess Ferrari could do a short series in a high price.

The last April 1 Antonello Coletta declining to specify whether it will use a road-going product as a base or come up with a pure prototype featuring road model styling cues.
When Sportscar 365 asked which subset of the LMH technical rules Ferrari will be following, Coletta said: “I prefer to answer this question in the future.
“Now we consider both ideas. Honestly – in my head – the solution is clear. But for the moment I prefer to maintain a cover on this decision.”

How competitive was he in GT racing? Will he cut it against F1-level talent of which WEC will have even more by 2023?

rossi took part to a couple of BES races back in 2012 and once or twice ran in 12H abu dhabi... but please don't get too hyped, driving skillswise, rossi is just a silver driver like many others.
He recently got tons of petrodollars for his new motogp team, if he would like to make a WEC season, he just needs to throw some coins to kessel or af corse to use one of their 488

I could see Raikkonen joining them. He seems like a good candidate when he's done with f1. Rossi would be nice, I think with enough testing and practice he could be there.

Yeah I could see this happening too; he already has Ferrari ties (their last champion), I assume eventually Kimi will get sick of always finishing at the back of the F1 field, and as his children get older, he'll want to spend more time with them, and an WEC (and maybe IMSA) schedule would be much more conducive to that than a jam-packed F1 schedule.

raikkonen tested a 908 back in 2011 summer but he then kept with WRC before joining back f1 with renault in 2012. Like jenson button he has always had a "gentle" tires saving style that could fit well for endurance, but I don't think he could have the right mental approach and attitude for nowadays endurance races... he doesn't even hide the fact he's still driving more for passion than ambition, if a mediocre driver like giovinazzi can beat him regularly, it tells a lot about raikkonen's actual motivation

I'm guessing they will have 2 WEC cars, but I wonder if they will be selling any cars for customers right away? Or even running some cars in IMSA? Just trying to figure out how many drivers they possibly need.
