  • Fiorano Test 2021 F1 Interview Charles Leclerc

    Scuderia Ferrari’s five days of testing at Fiorano ended today, with Mick Schumacher driving in the morning and test driver Callum Ilott taking over for the afternoon. No fewer than seven drivers took part in the test: apart from Mick and Callum, the others were the official race drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, the latter making his track debut with the Prancing Horse, Robert Shwartzman and Marcus Armstrong. Giuliano Alesi also bid farewell to the Ferrari Driver Academy, having his first drive in a Formula 1 car, 30 years on from his father Jean’s debut with the team. Over the five days, the SF71H completed over 500 laps, equivalent to more than 1500 kilometres. It was a useful experience for the drivers and also for the team, enabling the crew to get back in the swing of racing, testing all the procedures for the coming season, which at least for the first part will be the same as last year’s, with personnel split into sub-groups and bubbles and having to wear masks as part of the Covid-19 protocols.

    Scuderia Ferrari has completed the second of three days of testing scheduled on the Fiorano track. Today on the SF71H the starting drivers, Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc took turns. Carlos Sainz was the first to come out of the pits shortly after 9.30 in the morning. The Spaniard, in difficult track conditions - 3 degrees of temperature and patches of damp on the asphalt - completed a total of 59 laps (equal to almost 176 km), returning to familiarize himself with the team and a Formula 1 car. "Exactly one year ago I was doing my first laps in a Ferrari - said Carlos once he got out of the car - and I must say that even if many things have changed, since now I know everyone and I really feel at home, riding here is always something special. I was very pleased to see so many of our fans on the side of the track and for this reason I wanted to go and greet them when I finished my session ”.
