Barcelona, 1 March 2012 – Second day at Montmelò near Barcelona for the winners of the "Vinci Barcellona con la Scuderia Ferrari" Contest with the participants at the track for the conclusive tests of the season. Felipe Massa drove the F2012 on a sunny day and the four lucky winners from Italy, Russia and the USA followed his moves from the paddock terrace and inside the Ferrari structure at the test site.
In the late morning they met Marc Gené, who explained the box and showed them how the behind-the-scenes of the Ferrari Formula 1 department works.
These are the enthusiastic impressions from today:
Maxim: "Another fantastic day for me. I’m so happy to be able to be here at the box during the test sessions with the possibility to see the behind-the-scenes of Ferrari’s Formula 1. What a privilege!
I’ll return to Russia with my heart filled with amazing emotions. I’m really happy that I had the possibility to experience the tests here in Barcelona.”
Neil: "We’ve seen the cars on the track, which was great. The most exciting thing was the chat with Marc Gene, who is really very interesting. He spoke to us about the technical aspects of Formula 1, aspects we didn’t really know anything about. I will never forget the moment when I was at the pit lane and the cars came in and went out again. Even the food is great here. Well, it’s just an unforgettable experience!”
Niccolò: "Another very interesting day. We’ve seen the cars on the track and even their competitors. We were very close to the single-seaters and it was really exciting, because usually it’s so difficult to get so close. I’ll never forget these days, it was my childhood dream come true."
Franco: "Thank you so much, Ferrari. I have been a fan for a very long time and I never thought that I would make such an experience. I spoke to the people involved, I lived with the team and I’m really happy.”
