Luca Badoer Resigns From Ferrari Test Role

Luca Badoer, the infamous Italian Ferrari test driver has resigned from his role with the team and will make a final appearance for the squad today.

Badoer became a household name in 2009, when he took over Ferrari race duties from Felipe Massa when the Brazilian recieved severe head injuries at the Hungarian Grand Prix.  He underperformed in both races he competed in, indeed finishing last at Spa a race which was won by team mate Kimi Raikkonen.  Following ridicule in the Italian press, he cancelled his come back and the role was given to Giancarlo Fisichella.

Badoer had been a tester alongside Fisichella and Marc Gene at the team, but will now leave after he shows off a 2009 Ferrari to the Bologna Motorshow.

Ferrari described the 13 year partnership with Badoer was “extraordinary”.
