Today, Rubens Barrichello got behind the wheel of the F2005 for the first time. The Brazilian took to the track at 9.15 and finished work having completed 95 laps, eleven on the short course.

"Days like these always give you a nice feeling," said Barrichello, "when you drive a new car for the first time, especially when it's a Ferrari.

"First impressions count and I am very happy with how it felt to drive the F2005. It is definitely quicker than the F2004 M and represents a step forward in every area."
