Now retired after a long touring car career after Formula 1. Whilst temporarily out of a drive, the deaths of Peruzzi and Alboreto forced his decision to quit. He still keeps some links to racing, as he often likes to go testing on Bridgestone's track near his home in Rome, acting as an advisor and erstwhile test driver for the Japanese tyre manufacturer, as well as a brand ambassador and as a racing instructor for them, which has also seen him based in Dubai. Stefano has become particularly renowned for his work as a tyre development engineer and driver. Modena also ran a kart business for a while after stopping as a racer.
