Kobayashi tests Ferrari at Fiorano

Kamui Kobayashi has tested a Ferrari formula one car at the Italian team's Fiorano circuit.

Some immediately interpreted the news as a sign the Maranello based squad might be shaping up a potential replacement for Felipe Massa, who went to hospital for checks after two high speed crashes in Monaco at the weekend.

In fact, the former Toyota and Sauber driver - who is now under contract as a Ferrari sports car driver - was simply trying Ferrari's 2010 car ahead of a forthcoming demonstration event scheduled for Russia.

"I raced against this car and I knew how quick it was, so it was very important to get some experience of it," the Japanese driver said.
