The BBC reports that Ferrari technical director Ross Brawn confirmed Friday at Monza that MotoGP champ Valentino Rossi is scheduled for a full 2006 testing program for Ferrari F1.
Reportedly, Rossi is already competitively quick in slower corners, but he has yet to master the high speed braking capabilities of an F1 car. Even experienced auto racers from outside F1 are amazed by the performance of carbon/carbon brakes combined with a light car and sticky tires, so it's probably understandable if someone used to managing two tiny contact patches has a little adjusting to do.

Anyway, Dad should be pleased! (see earlier post)
