Not much. They debuted the car in Abu Dhabi at the afterpiece of the F1 season, and I saw—and heard—it and knew I capital it. My aboriginal anticipation was, “What a car! I accept to accept that.” That’s about all the analysis I did. I took commitment four years ago in August. The activity confused adequately bound already I was in the queue. I had to assurance all the abstracts and aces the accouter afore they could body it. Three or four months later, the car was delivered.

What were some of the accouter options?

They’re unlimited. I accept the acceptable affluence of actuality acceptable accompany with Flavio Manzoni, the arch of Ferrari design. I asked Flavio if he would advice me, so he beatific me three or four altered choices, alive a little bit about what I admired in cars, and I best one from that. He beatific it to Corse Clienti to execute. Corse Clienti will do this accomplished activity on their own, but I capital Flavio’s help.

Where did you aboriginal see your car in person?

At [Ferrari’s clandestine analysis clue in] Fiorano. There were three FXX K cars delivered and we all did our shakedowns together. You ride aboriginal with a able driver, and it was an ‘oh my’ moment. It was surreal to be on that Fiorano track, aback I never anticipation I’d be alive there.

I don’t know. I’m one of the drivers who has the best kilometers on the car, 7,500 km [4,660 miles] already. Every clue you drive, you get a sticker on the windshield, so I accept a complete row and a half. Though all are fun, the clue best ill-fitted for the Evo is Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. The car runs able-bodied actuality at Laguna Seca, too. I activated actuality for Challenge so I apperceive the clue appealing able-bodied and I’ve been afflicted how the car runs here. I anticipate it’s able-bodied ill-fitted to any alley course. I’ve additionally been to Vallelunga in Italy, Hockenheim in Germany, Silverstone in England and we’re activity to Nordschleife in July.

How do you top alive an FXX K at Nordschleife?

I don’t apperceive if you can. My achievement is to do the Red Bull Ring in Austria or Suzuka in Japan, and maybe Abu Dhabi.

What afraid you best about the Evo aback alive it for the aboriginal time?

It’s the aboriginal amalgam car I’ve anytime driven, and the torque out of a apathetic bend was incredible. The electric adeptness gets you out of a bend actual strong. We accept the adequacy of manipulating the KERS, and an added affection in the Evo is a push-to-pass button, which gives you not the best power—that’s Qualifying mode—but it gives you a absolutely acceptable boost. It’s been an amazing acquaintance to drive a amalgam car and feel that nice electrical accessory to the V-12

The KERS (kinetic activity accretion system) helps balance activity beneath braking. Can you explain the arrangement a little and how you use it?

There’s a Fast Allegation mode, which we use to accompany it in afterwards application Manual approach or Qualifying mode, because it takes the array adeptness bottomward fast. Qualifying approach gives you best adeptness from the electrical system. It has a Continued Run mode, which is what I drive it in best of the time. Now that we accept the adeptness to actuate Manual approach with our thumb, I use that a lot. Application the KERS with the buttons allows you to change the array adeptness afterwards accepting to put it aback into fast charge. It disengages aback you put on the anchor and you accept to reengage it afterwards a turn. I’m application it area you accept abundant beeline band ambit to account from it. It’s aloof beneath altercation to recharge the array this way. They approved a lot of disciplinarian ascribe into the Evo and the best accepted affair they heard was the manettino for the KERS was on the animate afore and could they put it on the council wheel, area it’s beneath confusing to change it.

I do, but at my date in life, afterwards six years, this apparel me better. At 72, I’m not abiding I will get aback into aggressive racing. I do still get a adventure aback I hit the push-to-pass and fly by someone. I’ve acclimated it a few times advancing out of about-face 11 here, and a slower car in advanced of me was to the floor, and I still got about him.

You mentioned consistency. Are you accomplished into your telemetry?

I don’t attending at it every time I go out but I do attending at the telemetry. It’s such a abundant affairs and at the end of every clue session, we get a USB drive with all our onboard footage and all our telemetry that you can dive into at home. They accelerate us email letters with that data, and the cachet of the car and the activity of the gearbox and how abundant time until they accept to do a tune up or an agent overhaul.

You watch their apparatus and their anchor zones and they allocution me through the clue on headsets. It’s acutely helpful.

How tight-knit are the FXX K owners?

Quite. We all adore anniversary other’s aggregation and that’s affectionate of like the Challenge Series. You body a absolute brotherhood with the added drivers. There are some that are beneath alternate than others, but best of them are affable and fun to be around. I accumulate in blow with a few aback we’re not on the track.
