Following an afternoon spent fanging this new 770bhp Ferrari around the Italian countryside, you’d be forgiven for needing a quiet word with yourself, followed by a lie-down in a shuttered room. The F12tdf, it seems, asks as many questions as it supplies answers.

A contemplative moment isn’t on the agenda. Not today. But on our return to Fiorano, sweaty-palmed and eyes agog, we do get an impromptu five minutes to download Ferrari’s highest-profile employee: Sebastian Vettel. At the previous day’s Finali Mondiali end-of-season hoopla, his Scuderia teammate Kimi Räikkönen had explored the F12tdf’s limits by doing donuts on Mugello’s main straight. You’ve got to love the guy. Vettel is fresh from a few, rather more considered laps of Fiorano in the gathering dusk.

There’s another big smile. Vettel, an Anglophile with a solid working knowledge of Fawlty Towers. Little Britain and much else besides, can be mischievous. But he also has the highly sensitive bottom of a quadruple Formula One world champion, and besides, we know from our own slightly tremulous five-lap foray around Fiorano that he’s right. On top of which we were taken on a hot lap demo by Ferrari chief test driver Raffaele de Simone that basically vapourised Turn 7.

The F12tdf might be named after the Fifties 250 GT special that won the famous French road race three years running (1956, ’57 and ’58), as well as the Targa Florio and other sepia-tinted classic events, but make no mistake – this new car represents Ferrari on revolutionary ultra-fast forward. On which basis, we’d venture that tdf (some bicycle race or other owns the rights to the words in full) is something of a misnomer, except that Piero Ferrari himself apparently suggested it, based on memories of conversations with his old man – the Old Man – back in the day when Ferrari’s road cars effortlessly made the species jump to the track.
