Kamui Kobayashi, Ferrari, Fiorano, 2013Kamui Kobayashi had a chance to drive a Ferrari Formula One car at the team’s Maranello test track day.

The Japanese driver got behind the wheel of a Ferrari F10 as raced by the team in 2010. F1 teams are allowed a limit number of runs using old machinery for filming purposes.

Kobayashi drives for Ferrari’s GT racing team in the World Endurance Championship.

“The first feeling was one of great happiness,” said Kobayashi. “I raced against this car and I knew how quick it was, so it was very important to get some experience of it.”

“Last year?s race in Brazil was the last time I drove a Formula One car and now I am racing in WEC in a 458 GT and the impressions are completely different.”

“But it wasn?t hard to readapt, because in the past, I?ve driven all sorts of cars and I?m used to change.”

Kobayashi drove the car to familiarise himself with it ahead of his planned run at the Moscow City Racing event on July 21st.

    Definitely a premature exit from F1, I pray for him to return. Kimi and Kamui could tear the field up
