OK, if you insist: it was reasonably warm

I’ve now driven the 488 Pista, and it’s acebiscuits. By contrast, this film I’ve made is a bit crap.

The fact is, I have edited two laps together, which will be quite apparent when you watch it. So don’t fill the comments with all that lol the jump at 00:53, because I know. And don’t bother to tell me that I bottled it a bit through the long left before the bridge complex, because I know that. Roflcopter at your face in that helmet. I know. I look a right nob.

On some days, you can’t do a complete hot lap of the Ferrari test circuit. You have to lift just before the pits for the sake of the people living in the house next to the track. This was one such day. So, again, there’s no point saying ha, you didn’t keep it planted going under the bridge, because I know that as well. If I’d done that, I’d have been thrown out.

It’s a fab car, the fastest production Ferrari ever around this circuit. Though not when I’m driving it.

  • "Roflcopter" is my new favorite word.

  • When you drive your Panda after a ‘track day’, do you find yourself cutting through Mrs. Johnson’s petunias on a store run?

  • Someone chose to live right next to Fiorano but they object to loud car noises?

  • Cool video. Since you preemptively defended yourself from everything else, your watchband is too tight.
