Rossi tests a Ferrari F1 car at Mugello

Published: 21 November 2008

MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi tested a Ferrari Formula One car at Mugello yesterday as a gift from the Italian team for achieving his eighth championship title.

Rossi apparently completed nearly 30 laps of the famous Italian circuit and recorded a respectable fastest lap time of 1 min 22.5 seconds. 

Rossi's lap time wasn't bad at all, considering that at Ferrari's last Mugello test F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen posted a top time of 1 min 21.079 seconds, only 1.5 seconds quicker.

Rossi may even of been able to post a faster lap time, but his test was cut short by bad weather.

Clearly Rossi's racing talent isn't limited to just 2 wheels- or tarmac for that matter. The Italian champion is also set to take part in the Wales Rally GB next month in aid of Children in Need.
