F1 pictures

Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa have made their first official appearance for Ferrari in 2011 at the team’s annual media event, “Wrooom”.

They were joined by GP2 driver Jules Bianchi, who is the team’s new test driver for the 2011 season.

Another of the team’s reserve drivers, Marc Gene, was in attendance. As was Valentino Rossi following his move to the Ducati Moto GP team who are also sponsored by Marlboro.

Outgoing test driver Luca Badoer will join the team tomorrow and drive a specially-liveried F60 marking his 13 years with Ferrari.

However the opening ceremony for the event yesterday had to be cancelled due to bad weather at the venue.

Here are pictures of the drivers at the first day of the event.

    I think I know where he’ll look first to shave 5 hundreth of a second off his lap time… ;)

    Poor Fisi….bad career move… he could have easily erazed Adrian Sutil in that Force India after Spa 2009 success.

    good spot fixy
    there is a definite similarity with the new designed scuderia ferrari/ducati logos and the marlboro one! at least not as blatant as the barcode!
    so who thinks jules bianchi will be in a ferrari seat before the end of the season?

      I actually really like the new Ferrari team logo. I like how its not a just a box and also how the white line at the top right of the design doesn’t connect to the white area. To me it now looks nothing linked to marlboro.

      The Ducatti team logo does still look like Marlboro though, with its white outlined box with a large white area and smaller red area ontop. The slight curve and odd red line doesn’t hide it.

      Bianchi? Not unless either Alonso or Massa are unfit for any reason.

    lol. Alonso is really bad at doing a convincing forced smile.

    notice the new Pirelli logos on the uniform too.

    Not sure whether Alonso will keep his mustache, but he looks funny when he smiles with it?

    Santa’s still in town!

  11. James said on 12th January 2011, 4:26

    Still working out if it’s D’Artagnan, Porthos or Athos?

  12. That pic of Alonso and Rossi has to be staged right? The forced smiles and such, they are not known to be friendly with each other…

    I don’t see the similarity to Mario. Alonso looks more like Michael Palin in the Spanish Inquisition sketches.

    Outgoing test driver Luca Badoer will join the team tomorrow and drive a specially-liveried F60 marking his 13 years with Ferrari.

    How do they plan to run an F60 at a ski resort?

    Oooo I wonder what Mark Webber will respond with? They were having a good beard-off but Alonso is trouncing him!
