Kamui Kobayashi, who lost his race seat at Sauber at the end of last season, was back behind the wheel of a Formula One car when he drove a 2010 Ferrari at the Scuderia's Fiorano test track.

Kobayashi was gaining time behind the wheel ahead of the Moscow City Racing event in July 21 when he will demonstrate a Ferrari F10 on the streets of the Russian capital.

"The first feeling was one of great happiness," he said. "I raced against this car and I knew how quick it was, so it was very important to get some experience of it.

"Last year's race in Brazil was the last time I drove a Formula 1 car and now I am racing in WEC in a 458 GT and the impressions are completely different. But it wasn't hard to readapt, because in the past, I've driven all sorts of cars and I'm used to change.

"It will be very nice to drive an F1 car again at this event in Moscow and for me it will be a double debut: the first time at the wheel of a Ferrari F1 car in an event and my first visit to the city."
