Montmelò, 22 January 2010 – Perfect weather conditions enabled Felipe Massa today to complete a special test session started in the morning behind the wheel of a F2008 provided by Maranello’s F1 Clienti department.
The World Champion car from 2008 was brought to the Catalan track for a very special two-day test session with Valentino Rossi. The Brazilian driver took the opportunity to regain confidence behind the wheel on a track, which is part of the Formula 1 calendar. Felipe concluded the training with the single-seater - fitted with demo tyres due to the current rules - after over 400 kilometres.
Before a satisfied Felipe let the track he spoke to www.ferrari.com about today’s impressions: "It was a perfect way to optimise my form here in Barcelona. I’m really happy that I had this new opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Formula 1 single-seater on a race track. I can’t wait to sit in the new car and get stuck in.”
