Max Biaggi tests Formula One car

At a rainy Silverstone circuit, former MotoGP rider Max Biaggi tested today a Midland-MF1 Toyota Formula One car. The 34 year old Italian completed nine laps of the track, which hosts the British F1 Grand Prix.

"It was an amazing experience" declared Biaggi afterwards. "The weather made it quite difficult and I had one moment on opposite lock when I put down the power too early, but the overall grip and power of the car was very impressive."

"The car is a big toy. It´s like a big go-kart. I didn´t get anywhere near its limit today, but I went fast enough to appreciate what level of performance can be reached."

However the Roman Emperor refused to make any comparisons between MotoGP and F1. "I love both, you can´t compare them because on a bike I am free, it´s like I am dancing on it to make it go fast. In an F1 car you are strapped in very tight, which is a weird sensation for me".
