Put a Ferrari test driver behind the wheel of a LaFerrari, and it's an exercise in control. Put Kimi "Leave me alone I know what I'm doing" Raikkonen behind the wheel, and you have a spinning, tire smoking, flame spitting monster that sounds like the God of war.

Marchettino was in the right place at the right time, and captured Raikkonen's run in a LaFerrari at Ferrari's Fiorano test track. This video is worth it for the sound alone. Not to mention the spin, which I imagine Kimi just shrugged, said "car is fine," and then drove off. Hey, it could have been way worse.


Alonso has also driven the car and didn't have a moment like that.

That's why he's our favorite F1 driver.
