Ferrari's Alonso and Massa ride world's fastest rollercoaster at Ferrari World
The Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro drivers visited Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the theme park centred on the Maranello marque. It is located on Yas Island, the venue which hosts the nineteenth and final round of the Formula 1 World Championship. Felipe and Fernando arrived in the Emirates on Tuesday night to bring the curtain down on this closely contested season and today they were taken to the Scuderia Challenge, an attraction in the park which allows people to tackle a simulated lap of the Yas Marina Circuit at the wheel of a 430 Scuderia Challenge car. Four journalists were in attendance, Ottavio Daviddi of Tutto Sport, Stefano Mancini of La Stampa, Laurent Dupin of TF1 and Julien Febreau of Europe 1. These men were the top qualifiers of a competition held yesterday for the international media. The two drivers were bubbling with excitement having just experienced the Formula Rossa, the world's fastest rollercoaster. "Really incredible," was the unanimous verdict of Fernando Alonso who won the first race on the simulator and Felipe Massa, at the end of the breathtaking lap. "Thanks to this attraction, all lovers of speed, like us will be able to experience, for once in their lives at least, the unique sensation of being launched into the air at 240 kilometres per hour, as well as enjoying what is a truly great day for all real Ferrari fans."
F1 2014 vs Formula E Comparison - Monaco
Nico Rosberg's 2014 pole lap against Sebastian Buemi's lap that was published to the Formula E youtube channel. Admittedly Buemi's lap was not a qualifying lap, so this a little of bit of an unfair comparison, but I doubt he would make up ~10 seconds in the difference so some conclusions can still be drawn.
F1 Track Simulator - Sebastian Vettel at Yas Marina Circuit
Sebastian Vettel shares his strategies for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The custom-built Red Bull Racing simulator puts the driver on a 10-foot, hydraulically-controlled hexapod. Atop this platform is a 180 degree screen fed by three projectors, along with an exact recreation of the RB6 cockpit. All of these elements combine to create one of Formula One's most advanced simulators.
