Loeb wants Ferrari F1 test

World Rally champion Sebastien Loeb has said he is going to start pushing this winter for Ferrari to give him a Formula One test.

The Frenchman has already spoken to the team's management about his desire to try out a Grand Prix car, and he told the italiaracing website that he is hoping his dream can become a reality soon.

"Of course I'd love to, a lot," he said when asked about testing a Ferrari. "In fact I've already told Jean Todt.

"So far nothing's been done especially because during the season I had other problems to deal with. But I'll push for it again soon, as soon as Ferrari go back to winning ways.

"I'd also like to test a real racing bike and sooner or later I'll do it. With all the precautions and without trying to get lap-times beyond my capabilities, but I'll do it.

"For years I dreamed of owning [a Ferrari road car] and I'm very glad I managed to get one."
