Once in a while it’s good to put yourself in other people’s shoes, those who exploits you have to write about on a daily basis, telling tales of highs and lows, victories and defeats. That was the case this morning for a dozen brave Italian journalists, who chose to compete against Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa in karts. At the end of the morning, Felipe was given a special send off by all the staff and the general public who were at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi today: even if the next time he returns it will not be as a Scuderia driver, he will always be dear to all his fans.

They will both be there in the Yas Marina Paddock, smartly turned out in Scuderia Ferrari team kit, taking part in technical meetings with the race team, talking to guests and giving interviews to the press. No, it’s not Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso, but Marc Gene and Pedro de la Rosa. It’s a similar job description to the race drivers, except that, unless something prevented Fernando or Felipe from competing, they will never get to drive
Arriveranno entrambi nel paddock di Yas Marina indossando come sempre l’uniforme della Scuderia Ferrari, e prenderanno parte ad un intenso programma che ne prevede la presenza ai briefing tecnici oltre ad incontri con ospiti e media. Contrariamente a quanto si potrebbe immaginare non stiamo parlando di Felipe Massa e Fernando Alonso, ma di Marc Gené e Pedro de la Rosa. Il loro lavoro durante i weekend di gara è molto simile a quello dei piloti titolari, fatta eccezione per l’attività di pista

It was a special day for two 30 year old Italians, who are great fans of Scuderia Ferrari, but not the sort to go easy on criticisms. They were chosen to experience a day in Maranello but, above all, to meet one of the main targets of their barbs via social networks.
"The Buddh International Circuit is an interesting track which offers the full range of challenges, with a reasonable number of straights, some fast corners and slow ones. A bit like Korea, the track has a slightly schizophrenic nature, because you want the car to be good down the straights, but there are also some very demanding slow speed sections".

"Il Buddh International Circuit è un circuito interessante, composto da curve lente e veloci, oltre a diversi rettilinei abbastanza lunghi. Un mix simile a quello del Gran Premio di Corea, dove la pista ha un andamento leggermente ‘schizofrenico’". Follow us on Facebook and Twitter Ferrari Since 1947
Even if the most likely scenario is that at some point in the next few weeks, we will be congratulating Sebastian Vettel on a fourth world title, Scuderia Ferrari will be tackling the remaining four rounds of the championship with the same determination as ever. The target the Prancing Horse is aiming for is that of finishing second in both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ classifications.
Anche se lo scenario più attendibile nelle prossime settimane dice che presto o tardi ci sarà da congratularsi con Sebastian Vettel per la conquista del suo quarto titolo mondiale, la Scuderia Ferrari affronterà le ultime quattro prove del campionato con la stessa determinazione di sempre, con l’obiettivo di conquistare la seconda posizione sia nella classifica Piloti che in quella Costruttori.
