|MASSA TO DEBUT NEW FERRARI|
| Maranello, 24 January – It will fall to Felipe Massa to give the car that Ferrari will use in this year's Formula 1 World Championship its track debut. The Brazilian will begin work on development of the new car, starting on 5 February at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, which hosts the first of three test sessions of four days duration each, to be held in the run-up to the start of the season. Felipe will stay on track until 7 February before handing over to Pedro De La Rosa, who will thus make his debut at the wheel of a Ferrari.
In the meantime and throughout all the first part of February, Fernando Alonso will intensify his physical training, in preparation for a first part of the season which, as usual will be very demanding, both because of the long distances involved between the various Grands Prix and because of the variety of weather conditions encountered from Melbourne to Sakhir, with Sepang and Shanghai in between. Fernando will get behind the wheel of the fourth car of his Ferrari career for the first time on 19 February at Montmelo's Catalunya circuit. The Spaniard will drive for three days before handing over to team-mate Massa. The final test session, also at Montmelo from 28 February to 3 March will see Felipe and Fernando take turns on track: Thursday and Saturday for the Brazilian, Friday and Sunday for the Spaniard. This means the breakdown of test days for the Ferrari men is as follows: Massa six days, Alonso five and De La Rosa one.

|A victory for history• The Ferrari 512 M: the sports prototype faster than the F1|
Maranello, 28th October – The Ferrari 512 M was the last car Maranello designed for the Sports Prototype World Championship to sport a 5-litre engine. It was a veritable powerhouse of technology with revolutionary features that, because of a rule change, sadly never fully exploited its enormous potential. The 512 M was an evolution of the 512 S, the car that Enzo Ferrari launched in late 1969 as a rival to the Porsche....
|1956 Argentine Grand Prix: Least in the Kingdom is GreaterSpeaking of the power of humility, the Bible says the least, within the context of the world, if they follow God's commands, shall be greater than those considered great. |
To say that Luigi Musso was the least within the kingdom of Scuderia Ferrari would be a terrible understatement. Having a reputation for caring more about his cars than those that pilot them, it was certainly true that Enzo held little place in his heart for his fellow Italian. However, in the Roman's very first Formula One....

This would be a big step up in performance, for car and driver. Here Musso's real talent would need to be realized. Otherwise, the Italian would find himself an estranged patriot without a home. But, on American soil, the young Italian would find his place. |
The Roman Musso had had an impressive run with Maserati. Af....
