Charles Leclerc, Ferrari, Fiorano, 2021

Charles Leclerc has made his return to testing for Ferrari after contracting Covid-19 earlier this year.

Ferrari announced 12 days ago Leclerc had returned a positive result following an earlier test for the coronavirus and was self-isolating at his home in Monaco.

Leclerc is taking part in a test for the team today at Fiorano using an SF71H which the team raced in 2018. His new team mate Carlos Sainz Jnr will drive the car tomorrow.

This is the second of four days of testing for Ferrari at its private facility. Three members of its young driver academy were in action yesterday. Ferrari Driver Academy member Mick Schumacher, who will make his F1 debut with Haas this year, and Callum Ilott will drive the car on Thursday.
