Lol seemed like a competition to see who could brown the other's pants, which in a mid-engined car probably isn't too hard.

Ah... The life of a Ferrari F1 driver.

Those guys throw that 458 around like it was a go cart.

My boy, Freddie, especially, has unreal car control & is fearless.

Guess they were just messing around but I'm surprised how un-smooth they were.

LOL, they weren't trying to be--just screwing around (especially Alonso). I'm sure if they were serious, things would look A LOT different...

I can't speak for them, but if I were in the driver seat I'd be driving the same way. just to see where the limits of grip are on the car.

You'd only have one lap. Tossing it around would tell you more then any fast lap could ever about the car.

it's a good question tho, I'm sure many were thinking the same.

I seriously doubt that was Alonso's first time in the 458 so he probably was very comfortable in the car already.

Going from a F1 car to a 458 has to be a serious "downgrade".... lol

Imagine going from a FRS/BRZ to a 70's mustang.

I'm jealous of their comfortableness to be able to throw the car around like that and continue to laugh and talk. That's when you know you're a good driver.

If I'm not mistaken Fernando was gifted one of 458s in a special white color with the seats embroided with his signature so he definitely has experience in that car. Love the F1 driver life...
