While all eyes are on the Young Drivers Test in Abu Dhabi, Ferrari also tested another pair of junior races in Italy yesterday.

Italian Sergio Campana and Canadian Michael Lewis drove a 2009-specification F60 at the Vallelunga circuit.

Campana won the Italian Formula Three championship and Lewis was the best rookie in the series this year. Campana did 43 laps and set a best time of 1’20.600, while Lewis did a quickest time of 1’21.040 in 45 laps.

Ferrari Driver Academy head Luca Baldisserri said: “Our commitment to the youngsters in the Italian F3 will definitely run in 2012.

“Since 2008, we have offered this opportunity to the most deserving drivers from the series, running them in our F1 car, which, if only for a day, gives them a chance to realise their dream of getting close to the world of Ferrari.”
