The Ferrari Motorhome Err Palace

The Ferrari Motorhome

The Ferrari Motorhome

A rare look behind the scenes at the 2010 Ferrari Motorhome that travels to the European rounds of F1 these days. Describing it as a motorhome really does it no justice, it’s more like a portable multi storey palace. Watch as Fernando Alonso himself takes us on a tour lasting over 6 minutes, moving form room to room explaining what the function of each on is. Unfortunately it is not in English, but will well worth a look as you can figure out most of what the rooms are for.

Watch as Fernando moves from the reception area, through to the cafe, peeks into the marketing offices, shows the various meeting rooms and engineers offices, a full kitchen where he runs into Massa, the drivers storage area, sponsor lounge/dining area, his own office/private area, Massas office/private area, team managers office, then finally up yet another level to more lounge areas complete with a fooseball tables. He ends outside on the balcony giving panaramic views out across the rest of the Formula One Paddock.

Truly an impressive home away form home with no expense or comfort spared. Even the decor is amazing with huge tv screens all around , and amazing Ferrari graphics and pictures all over the place.

Ayrton Senna and the Honda NSX

We all know that Aryton Senna was involved in the creation of the Honda NSX, helping Honda to refine the car and make it one of the worlds true supercars of the time.

Watch the video below, taken at the press day for the unveiling of the all new NSX at the Suzuka F1 Circuit. As an added bonus they included a footwell cam, so you can see him working the pedals as well as the steering wheel. The sheer car control and commitment is incredible. It’s a road car, a a press day, yet you can clearly see him pushing the limits both into and out of the corners, and even on the limit braking. If you think he was taking it easy, watch his foot as it slams to the floor on the throttle, and watch the tacho!
