It seems Australia’s Casey Stoner may have just as much talent on four-wheels as he does two, besting his Marlboro-sponsored Ferrari Formula One teammate Felipe Massa during a friendly winter kart race.
The premium sponsor brought together its two premier racing teams – Ferrari in Formula One and Ducati in MotoGP – for an all-star motorsport meet-and-greet in the Italian Alps.
Drivers of the four-wheeled variety included Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer, Felipe Massa and his brother Eduardo with Kimi Raikkonen out due to an illness.
MotoGP riders present included our own Casey Stoner, Nick Hayden and test rider Vittoriano Guareschi.
Massa led for much of the race, although flashbacks to the F1 driver’s championship scuffle saw Stoner pass him on the penultimate lap to take the chequered flag.
Fellow rider Nick Hayden rounded out the top three, ahead of Badoer, Guareschi and Eduardo Massa.
