'Prancing Horse' power – Italian bobsledder Simone Bertazzo inspects the sled he hopes will carry him and his teammates to gold at Sochi 2014. Its red livery is the hallmark of its designers, the legendary automotive manufacturer Ferrari.
Meeting of minds – Ferrari's partnership with the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) dates back to 2006. A Ferrari-designed bobsled was used at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and helped Italy win gold at the 2012 Youth Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria.
Quick of the mark – Bertazzo slides into the cockpit of his sled while his teammate sprints to power it from the start line.
Leading from the front – Bertazzo will lead the Italian bobsled team at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games. The 31-year-old won bronze in the two-man event at the 2007 World Championships in St. Moritz.
