Right before the start of the race weekend of the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, Fernando Alonso wanted to try the new 458 Spider, which will be presented at the IAA Frankfurt next Tuesday. The Scuderia Ferrari driver enjoyed the potential of the 8-cylinder mid-rear engine from the Prancing Horse - with hard top and fitted with the same most advanced technological content as the multi-awarded 458 Italia and now available in an "en plein air" version - on the roads around Maranello.
Alonso was extremely satisfied with the perfect combination of high performance, exceptional handling and the engine sound the 458 Spider is able to deliver.
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."
LaFerrari official launch promo
The wraps are finally off the LaFerrari. The Prancing Horse's
eagerly-anticipated limited-series special, of which just 499 will be
built, made its world debut today at the Geneva International Motor Show.
Usain Bolt test drives Ferrari 458 Italia and 599 GTB at Fiorano
Usain Bolt, world-record holder and gold medal winner at the Olympic Games
over 100 and 200 metres, experienced a special day in Maranello, where he
tested a 458 Italia and 599 GTB Fiorano on the circuit of the Prancing
Horse. The sprinter was excited in the cars as a passenger next to the
test-drivers Dario Benuzzi and Raffaele De Simone, while later on he
completed some laps himself behind the wheel. At the end of the day he
couldn't hide his love for the 458 Italia. "It's a little bit like me, very
reactive and determined!"
Later on Bolt joked about the high heartbeat provoked by test-driver Dario
Benuzzi, who showed him how to control the car on a wet track. "I was
really scared, but it was a good scare. I'm excited like a child." "Today,"
Bolt added, "I feel very close to the team. I am sorry for yesterday's
result, but that's sport, I know what I'm talking about. There are ups and
downs, but it's important to know how to get back on the track and I'm
convinced that Ferrari knows how to do that."
The tour ended with a visit to the atelier, Ferrari's personalisation area,
where Bolt met Ferrari CEO , Amedeo Felisa.
Fernando Alonso and the LaFerrari: "Remember, two slow laps..."

Ferrari F430 Spider drifting + donuts
Yesterday I had the opportunity of shooting this Ferrari F430 Spider doing
some insane donuts and drifting! He started with a brand new set of tires
and burned all the rubber off. The owner of the car used to drive rally
cars in Europe and is a huge fan of Ken Block and everything Ken Block does
for the rally sport community in the United States. The Ferrari sounds
absolutely insane while shredding tires. This isn't the first time the
owner has gone drifting in it because he shows great car control.
Also to let everyone know I am doing the Bullrun rally this week in a
Lamborghini LP640 so hopefully I will have a lot more videos coming soon!
