A Ferrari fires up Bologna

Bologna, 7 December – The noise of a Ferrari brought this Friday to life at the Bologna Motor Show, as fans of the marque were able to see a Formula 1 car in action. At this the 37th year of the show, it fell to Giancarlo Fisichella to drive an F60, which the Scuderia ran in the 2009 World Championship, with Fisichella himself at the wheel for some of the races towards the end of that season, standing in for the injured Felipe Massa. The Italian powered the car around the show’s Motor Sport Arena, getting a very warm welcome from the fans packing the stands despite the arctic conditions currently sweeping this part of Italy. Fisichella, who alongside Gimmi Bruni won this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship at the wheel of a 458 GT2, also did four pit stop simulations, bidding farewell to the team and fans as another race season ended.
