Rossi gets F1 thrill with Ferrari

When most of the MotoGP riders enjoy some well-deserved holidays and take a break from motorsport, current series leader Valentino Rossi enjoyed a two-day test at Fiorano with the Scuderia Ferrari. The Gauloises Yamaha rider already had a taste of Formula 1 last year at the prestigious Italian manufacturer test circuit.

"I wanted to get a better understanding of a Formula 1 car and I would like to thank Ferrari for giving me the opportunity to do so," said Rossi, whose previous 4-wheel outings also included participations in rally events.

"The two days were intensive and interesting. I completed a lot of kilometres and I began to understand the handling of the car, working with the engineers and [test driver] Marc Gené. I go back to the two wheels where there is still a long way to go to the end of the season."
