Time for medical checks for aspiring champions

Rome, 4 November – Today, participants in the Supercorso ACI-CSAI, run in conjunction with the Ferrari Driver Academy, took part in clinical-functional checks at the A Venerando Institute of Sports Medicine. The aspiring champions were welcomed by the Secretary General of CONI Roberto Fabbricini and the head of the FDA, Luca Baldisserri at the centre run by Dr.Antonio Spataro. There, they underwent a series of tests usually carried out on Olympic athletes. The Institute’s doctors made all its experience available in evaluating their sports functionality including laboratory tests, cardiology, rehabilitative-traumatology, ophthalmology, dental, otorhinolaryngology, dietary, pneumological and psychological tests. The evaluation ended with a certification of suitability for the role of a racing driver. It’s the third year these tests have been held, with the support of healthcare workers from MEDEX, Scuderia Ferrari’s Medical Partner.
