F1: Sebastian Vettel Arrives At Ferrari, Official Video

This is the official video released by Ferrari, including an interview with Sebastian Vettel following his first drive in a Ferrari at the team's test track at Fiorano.

As current rules don't allow any testing Vettel drove the a V8 powered Ferrari used by Fernando Alonso in 2012. This was a car that Alonso harried Vettel in, right down to a winner take all finale in Brazil. If nothing else Vettel will have gained insight into Alonso's capabilities as a driver by comparing the Ferrari to his title winning Red Bull.

Vettel's arrival at Ferrari mirrors that of Michael Schumacher, his mentor and friend. It took Schumacher five seasons to win his first title in red. Something tells me that Vettel might just better that record.
