You don’t simply arrive at Fiorano, sign the disclaimer, drive the car then leave. Here more than anywhere else in our world you should take your time – drive by the factory in the middle of Maranello and peer through the square archway on Via Abetone Inferiore, catching a glimpse of Ristorante Cavallino where Enzo dined through the trees opposite. Then you drive around the corner and along Via Gilles Villeneuve to the circuit entrance.

Beneath a sign reading ‘Pista di Fiorano’ is a tall metal gate, which slides to one side. You proceed through the narrow tunnel, realise that Lauda, Scheckter, Mansell, Schumacher, Alonso, Vettel and so many others have done the same, then find yourself right in the heart of Ferrari’s own test track.
