Ferrari has released footage of its two Formula One drivers taking turns lapping Spain’s Circuit de Catalunya in a Ferrari 458 Italia.
Riding together, and sharing banter, the two Ferrari F1 drivers each lap the 4.655km circuit in a spirited fashion with Fernando Alonso first behind the wheel of the 419kW/540Nm Ferrari 458, before they swap seats and Felipe Massa takes the reins.
The 2013 F1 season kicked off in Melbourne last weekend with Lotus’ Kimmi Raikkonen claiming victory at the Australian Grand Prix ahead of Alonso in second and Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel in third.
Massa just missed out on a podium finish in fourth place while Australians Mark Webber and Daniel Ricciardo had a less satisfying day. Webber finished sixth after starting from second and the young West Australian Toro Rosso driver was forced to retire with an exhaust issue.
The next round is at the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia on March 24.
