Carlos Sainz Jnr has made his debut behind the wheel of a Ferrari at the team’s test track in Fiorano.
Sainz hit the track in a 2018-specification Ferrari SF71H sporting his race number 55 earlier this morning.
Ferrari has arranged four days of running at Fiorano to give testing opportunities to Sainz, F1 team mate Charles Leclerc and an assortment of its junior drivers.
Sainz has been eager to have his first run in a Ferrari during last year’s post-season test at Yas Marina. However this was thwarted as only rookies and experienced drivers who did not compete in the 2020 championship were allowed to participate.
