A group of journalists had the privilege to take part in a special F12berlinetta track day at Fiorano. Assisted by Ferrari’s engineers and team of test-drivers, they were given the opportunity to clock up the miles as they endeavoured to push both themselves and the car to the limit. Exploiting the car’s V12 engine and brilliant natural balance to the fullest, the wet track also allowed the journalists to experiment with the various different Manettino settings, in a variety of grip levels to push the car’s performance.
However all the various dynamic controls were off when Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen got behind the wheel and provided some very special instructions. The guests also enjoyed the thrill of lapping Fiorano at the World Champion’s side as he gave vent to the Ferrari F12berlinetta’s enormous power, delivering a record performance in the fastest car in the Prancing Horse. From the passengers’ faces, it was evidently a very memorable track day experience.
