Two blistering champions join forces on the track at Fiorano
Eleven journalists from the world’s leading motoring publications have taken part in a special F12berlinetta track day at Fiorano. Assisted by Ferrari’s engineers and team test-drivers, they were given the opportunity to really clock up the miles as they endeavoured to push both themselves and the car to the limit. The group learned to exploit both the 740 hp unleashed by the mid-front V12 and the sporty car’s brilliant natural balance to the fullest too.
The wet track also allowed the journalists to experiment with the various different Manettino settings to push the car’s performance in a variety of grip levels. But all the various dynamic controls were off when Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen got behind the wheel and provided some very special instruction. The guests then enjoyed the thrill of lapping Fiorano at the World Champion’s side as he gave vent to the F12berlinetta’s enormous power, delivering not just record performance in the fastest car in the Prancing Horse range but also huge fun. An unforgettable experience as can be seen from the onboard video footage of the passengers’ faces.
