Pretty impressive. Youngster Bortolotti's 59.111s, is faster than the lap record by test driver Andrea Bertolini in the F 2008..

Young Italian drivers test for Ferrari at Fiorano

The top three finishers in this year’s Italian Formula Three Series got the chance to drive a Formula One car at Ferrari’s Fiorano circuit on Wednesday, as a reward for their success in the championship.

Mirko Bortolotti, Edoardo Piscopo and Salvatore Cicatelli all enjoyed time behind the wheel of the F2008 during the special day of testing, which was devised by Ferrari and Italian motorsport's governing body, the ACI-CSAI. The trio of young drivers also worked with engineers from the outfit’s race team and met tester Andrea Bertolini.

Bortolotti ended the day fastest, clocking a quickest time of 59.111s, after covering 40 laps. Piscopo’s best time was a 1m 00.336s after he completed 29 laps, while Cicatelli finished with a fastest time of 1m 01.243s over 33 laps.
