12 January: At the 2005 Wroom event, Ferrari announced the re-signing of Luca Badoer for 2 more years as a test driver and third driver for the team. 
Wroom traditionally marks the start of the season for Ferrari and is held on the snow at Dolomiti del Brenta.

Luca Badoer was delighted with the announcement and said "I signed a contract up to the year 2006 as a test driver, as a third driver with Ferrari. So as well as the seven seasons so far, I'm going to do two more.
Two more seasons will mean nine. I think that nine is going to be an important number for me. I don't think that anyone, to date, has done seven years as a test driver and I will do nine, so I think that for me that's something that is extremely nice and extremely important. I'm proud of this because it means that the situation is agreeable for both parties involved and so I'm sure that it has been useful for both to extend the contract for two more years, even if I have done seven already.
The situation within Ferrari is optimal, it's a big family, I get on well with all the people on the technical but also the human side, so I'm very happy to say that I've signed up to the year 2006 and hope that in these next two years we are going to get just as many victories and reap just as much success as we have until now."
