Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa are arguably two of the best racecar drivers in the world right now. So you can imagine just at-home they’d feel behind the wheel of a supercar like the Ferrari 458 Italia.
Well, it turns out, they’re a lot more confident in that seat than they are riding shotgun.
This video released by Ferrari, a marketing vid if there ever was one, features the two Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racers each getting his turn driving a 458 Italia with the other in the front passenger seat.
The video was shot at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona and if there’s a big takeaway we can get from seeing Alonso and Massa inside the Ferrari supercar, it’s that when you put them in a place where they’re most comfortable, you can see how genuinely human they can be. It’s a far cry from the serious nature of Formula One and to see both laugh, curse, and fear for their lives gives us a reminder that these two are all just like us.
The only difference is they get paid to do a job that most of us can only dream of.
