The recently opened Ferrari World theme park in Abu Dhabi has just had its first round of guests hit the park. Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso stopped by and tested their nerves on the claimed ‘world’s fastest roller coaster’, Formula Rossa, and for our amusement, a video of it has just been posted up on the ‘Tube.

Taking them from zero to around 240km/h in just a few seconds, we can see just how serious the ride is. Even two-time (2005 and 2006) Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso (on the right) has trouble dealing with the huge 4.8Gs worth of face-distorting pressure. Check it out, it’s quite hilarious.
