Na endlich, der Formel 1 Flitzer aus der allerersten Konzeptzeichnung, die in einem Jahresbericht von Walt Disney aufgetaucht war, wurde gestern vorgestellt. Francesco Bernoulli heißt er und ist wie man an seinen Farben nur unschwer erkennen kann, ein waschechter Italiener.
Francesco Bernoulli grew up in the shadow of the famous Monza race course in Italy where he and his friends would sneak onto the track and race the famous Pista di Alta Velocita bank turn. He was an instant winner on the amateur circuit and soon became an international Formula Racer champion. The ladies love Francesco’s open wheels, youngsters look up to his winning spirit and fellow racers envy his speed. But Francesco’s biggest fan is Francesco himself, as evidenced by his racing number. As the most famous race car in Europe, #1 Francesco is a favorite to win the World Grand Prix, which also makes him McQueen’s chief rival.
