Ferrari has received an illustrious visit today: nothing more and nothing less than Cristiano Ronaldo, the Juventus star of Turin and a renowned Ferrarista -and lover of sports cars in general-. This is what the Maranello brand has made public through his Instagram, in which the former Real Madrid striker had the opportunity to chat with the two Scuderia drivers: Charles Leclerc and a renowned Madrid player such as Carlos Sainz Jr.

We don't know who will have enjoyed more than whom, if Cristiano at the Fiorano circuit (the Juve striker and the drivers pose in front of Enzo Ferrari's house, right next to the test track where the street and street Ferraris are tuned historic F1s roll) or Sainz with one of his football idols.

The Madrid driver confessed a few weeks ago, in an interview with Corriere della Sera, that his favorite footballers were "Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo". From the second he already wears a dedicated shirt -although from Juve and not from his beloved Real Madrid-.

Cristiano, in turn, is a great lover of Formula 1 (before the pandemic, his presence every year in a Formula 1 Grand Prix was common)... and also of street Ferraris, of which he owns several units : a Ferrari LaFerrari (valued at USD 1,600,000) and a Ferrari 599 GTO (from "only" valued at USD 740,000).

Cristiano's visit to Maranello was part of an institutional event in which the president of Juventus, Andrea Agnelli (whose family is a shareholder of the Italian brand) and John Elkann, current CEO of Ferrari, also participated.
