Valentino Rossi testing F1 Ferrari

Many-times MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi has been testing Ferrari F1 cars off and on for the last six months or so. It’s widely speculated that the Ferrari F1 team hopes that Rossi’s undoubted ‘feel’ for speed can be translated into F1 world championships.

Such a remarkable achievement would not be without precedent. John Surtees won seven motorcycle world championships (various categories) from 1956 to 1960 before going on to win the F1 championship for (you guessed it) Ferrari in 1964.

So far, Rossi hasn’t quite got up to the speed of F1 super-driver Michael Schumacher. However, he’s been making a pretty good fist of things. The Flying Nerd’s spies have finally figured out just how Rossi is managing to go so fast so soon:
