The sun was back at the Mugello circuit, enabling Felipe Massa to complete his special test, which started yesterday with a F2007 provided by the Maranello’s F1 Clienti department. After his long absence from racing, due to his terrible accident last July during the Qualifying for the Hungarian GP and a taste at Fiorano and Mugello yesterday, the Brazilian driver was back to accomplish his desire to drive a Formula 1 single-seater before the end of the year,
Massa drove around 60 laps on his second day here on board of the Scuderia Ferrari single-seater, which won the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Titles in the 2007 season, fitted with exposition tyres for the occasion.
Felipe was satisfied by today’s outcome and said, before he flew back to Brazil, to www.ferrari.com: "Although I was behind the wheel of a completely different car compared to the one for next year, I had a perfect feeling, which gives me hope for the upcoming season. I was very quick immediately and nothing seems to have changed in my driving style compared to before the accident. I want to thank Ferrari for this present, which, together with my son, makes this Christmas even more special.”
