Today, for the first time in his career, Sebastian Vettel drove a (more modern) Ferrari Formula One car. The four-time world champion passed the first test for a new employer in a 2012 season Fiorano car after his contract with the Red Bull team expired yesterday. Due to the valid contract, Vettel was not allowed to perform at the last test in Abu Dhabi, although he only slightly violated this by visiting Ferrari's garage.
The rules allow teams to do this kind of testing with two-year-old race cars, and although Ferrari can't help itself with the extra miles, they only helped Vettl make a custom-made seat and get used to the new environment.
Vettel had the number five on his helmet and race car, his chosen start number with which he will race next season, and on his mostly white helmet there was also an inscription in Italian: "my first day with Ferrari".
