Kobayashi handed test by AF Corse Ferrari
12 February 2013 – Kamui Kobayashi will get behind the wheel of a Ferrari 458 Italia at the Motorland Aragón in Spain this week, with the Japanese driver being handed a test by AF Corse.
Kobayashi, who will be joined at the gathering by Karun Chandhok, Luca Filippi, Davide Rigon and Brandon Maisano, failed to secure a Formula 1 seat for the 2013 campaign, despite picking up a podium finish at last year's Japanese Grand Prix.
AF Corse has two seats remaining for its World Endurance Championship effort, meaning Kobayashi will be involved in an evaluation process. The test, which began on Monday, also features regular drivers Gianmaria Bruni and Giancarlo Fisichella.
