Sebastian Vettel is already reaping the perks of his new job at Ferrari after test driving the FXX-K at Fiorano.

The FXX-K is Ferrari's 1050bhp hybrid, with each car costing €2.5 million to produce. Fresh from his first test driving Ferrari's 2015 F1 challenger, Vettel used the down time between Jerez and Barcelona to put the hybrid beast through its paces at the team's Italian test facility.

Vettel clearly enjoys the ride, exclaiming at the end of the video: "Mamma mia! It goes like a rocket!" The German will hope Ferrari's SF15-T gives him similar feelings this season as he looks to help the team bounce back from its first winless campaign in 21 years.
