Juncadella in Ferrari F1 run

2012 F3 Euro Series champion and 2012 FIA European F3 Championship winner Daniel Juncadella sampled the 2009 Ferrari F60 at Vallelunga on Friday

Daniel Juncadella got to drive a Ferrari F1 car on Friday at Vallelunga, his prize for winning the new FIA European Formula 3 Championship.

The Spaniard, who also won the F3 Euro Series this season too, did five runs in total, taking to the track in the morning. He was joined by Riccardo Agostini and Eddie Cheever Jnr, who finished first and second in the Italian Formula 3 Championship, and both also got a chance to sample the 2009 Ferrari F60. This latter prize has been given out since 2008.

“This was a really interesting day that confirms the worth of this initiative,” said Luca Badisserri, head of the Ferrari Driver Academy.

“I hope this programme will continue for many years, helping with the development of young drivers.

“It's the first time we have given this prize also to the winner of the FIA European Formula 3 series, in the hope that this championship will become a reference point among the junior formulae leading to F1.”
