Carlos Sainz: Ferrari recruit says he ‘will never forget’ first test for the F1 team

Carlos Sainz says he will “never forget” his first test for his new Ferrari team on Wednesday. Sainz, at the wheel of the team’s 2018 car because of Formula 1’s rules restricting testing, said he was “very pleased with how the day unfolded”. The test was to help Sainz get familiar the team and car’s operations. Sainz will drive the car again on Thursday morning before Mick Schumacher, a Ferrari academy driver who is making his F1 debut for the affiliated Haas team this year, takes over in the afternoon. Pre-season testing in March has been limited to just three days – which gives each driver just one and a half days in their cars before the first race – and Leclerc said familiarising himself with the team had been a helpful exercise. Pre-season testing is in Bahrain from 12-14 March before the season starts at the same track on 26-28 March.
