Edoardo Piscopo enjoys positive F1 debut for Ferrari at Fiorano
The Formula One debut of Edoardo Piscopo finally came today at Fiorano, where he took on-track a Ferrari F2008. On the car that brought Ferrari the 2008 constructors' title, Edoardo was called to drive for first, finding damp conditions: after 8 laps with rain tires, he moved to slicks, topping a total of 27 laps around Modena's test track. Despite the tough weather, Edoardo left a strong impression by nearing the laptimes set by official test-driver Andrea Bertolini. Right after the end of the session, Edoardo headed towards Valencia, where he'll enter the second day of the collective World Series Renault tests with Draco.
"It has been a great experience, despite I could only drive for 27 laps in tough track conditions. I'm really happy with the results, though I think I could have improved my marks later, when the track warmed and started to get some tire groove. The car is incredible, so well-balanced to seem even easier than an A1GP car. It's incredibly effective on-track, making you learn and improve in a really natural way."
