Ferrari recalled that Carlos Sainz first got behind the wheel of a Scuderia racing car two days before two years ago, and it was SF21. On Wednesday, he again drove a 2021 Ferrari at the Fiorano test, completing 119 laps in one day.
The first 26 laps he drove in the morning when the track was wet and the temperature was only a few degrees above zero. But when the asphalt started to dry out, Carlos tried to switch to slicks, but the grip still left much to be desired, so this idea had to be abandoned.
The rain continued throughout the day and the team decided not to take the risk by continuing to work on wet tyres, but then conditions improved and Carlos was able to complete another 93 laps. In just one day he covered 354 km.
Sainz’s work on the track from the boxes was observed by Ferrari Racing Academy students Maya Voig and Arthur Leclerc. On the last day of testing, Charles Leclerc takes place in the cockpit of the SF21.
