Ferrari finished off its pre-season festivities with a kart race featuring both its 2010 race drivers.

Felipe Massa was unable to repeat his 2009 victory but he fared better than new team mate Fernando Alonso who crashed on the penultimate lap of the race. See video and pictures from the race and the rest of the event below.

The race was split into two parts. The first part was in Fiat Pandas which Massa won followed by Ducati Moto GP riders Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden. Giancarlo Fisichella was fourth ahead of Alonso and Massa’s younger brother Dudu.

Part two took place in karts and as the video below shows the new Ferrari team mates had a fine scrap with Alonso passing Massa and getting a cheeky tap for his trouble, before spinning to a halt later on. Hayden won overall.

It’s all good fun of course but the competition between the two will be rather more serious when the racing proper gets underway.
