Video: Fernando Alonso drives 458 Italia at Fiorano

Seeing Fernando Alonso behind the wheel of a Ferrari model is no real surprise. After all this is what he is paid for. But his latest "conquest" was the Ferrari 458 Italia as a celebration of the extension of his Formula 1 contract with Ferrari to 2016.

He tested the car at the Fiorano track and seems to have all the fun in the world behind the wheel. After all why wouldn’t he? He is driving an amazing car and more than that he is making more money than the entire world while having fun.

The only question coming to our mind is who is the passenger next to him? Can you make a guess? And if you do please share your thoughts with us. We will be very curious to see who do you think he is?

Agreed. The speed performance of the car is quite impressive and it was always compared with the McLaren 12C. Who the hell care on who’s sitting beside him, all I car was the vehicle!

Admittedly, the power output of the car is quiet impressive. I bet Fernando Alonso really enjoys driving this vehicle! BTW, will his car joining the F1 race? Well, I guess they just need to add the gearbox here and it ready to blast in the race track!

I wonder who they will be be the next one to be featured on this one. Hmm, Kimi Raikkonen would be an interesting candidate. And the car that he will be driving? Why not a souped up Mini.

Not really that surprised at how easily Alonso was able to handle the Italia, after all, he is one great driver. That passenger of his is really lucky to experience his skills.

That, video certainly does show Alonso’s skills as a driver. Just take a loty at how was able to handle all those corners. And to think that he is using the Italia, which is one of the hardest to handle cars today.

Well, what can you expect, this one is the Italia after all. So they would really make the interior all that classy. And the car indeed has very good handling.
