The 2009 season may have only just finished, but Fernando Alonso is already fully focused on 2010 and last week he took time out of his winter break to visit Ferrari - his new team for next year. Although still contracted to 2009 employers Renault, Alonso was permitted to journey to Maranello on Friday to meet with key Ferrari team members and tour the Italian squad's factory.

The Spaniard was initially greeted by team principal Stefano Domenicali, before he chatted to several engineers. He then visited the teams wind tunnel to see a model of their 2010 car, before working on his seating position in the cockpit. Finally he met with Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo, who officially welcomed the two-time world champion to the team.

Although Alonso will not be able to test Ferrari's new Formula One car on track until February next year after the FIAs test ban is lifted, the 28 year-old ended his day sampling Ferraris Fiorano test track in 458 Italia road car.
