Just the man to give us such a tour.
Unless you’re a pretty huge Ferrari nerd, you might never have heard of Raffaele De Simone, but you have almost certainly heard of his work. He was the test driver for the Ferrari 458 Speciale, the prancing horse’s hardcore, track-focused version of the big-selling 458 Italia. The following video is brought to us by Ferrari, and it shows De Simone taking the car around the track at Fiorano and discussing some of the more important components of the Speciale.
De Simone isn’t racing, but he is certainly taking the car around the track at pretty high speeds, and this is always what’s so impressive about Ferrari test drivers, they make it look so easy.
