The scream of a Ferrari Formula One engine on the banking (which reaches a maximum incline of 31°) at the World Center of Racing, is something unforgettable, especially when it’s the first time that these two worlds have come together as part of the Finali Mondiali.

For Ferrari drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel, Daytona was a whole new experience and they couldn’t wait to get on with it, looking forward to the fun of taking to the track with their respective F60s.

They discussed it first with their GT driver colleagues and then, in almost summery conditions for December in Florida, they went through the usual routine of the season just ended, putting on their gloves and helmet before heading out on track, running around as a pair and then pitting to change tyres.

It was a demonstration run for this American crowd that has always been so important to the Ferrari marque.
