Scuderia Ferrari debut with snowflakes at Fiorano

Yesterday saw the start of five days of testing at Fiorano for Scuderia Ferrari, with seven drivers involved. The 22-year-old Frenchman sported the number 28 on his car, just as his father did when driving for Ferrari in 1991. He too was making his debut in a Formula 1 car, having raced last year in Formula 2, taking two podium finishes. Marcus thus became the second-ever New Zealander to drive a Ferrari Formula 1 car, after Chris Amon, who raced for the Scuderia from 1967 to 1969. Being at the wheel of a Formula 1 car for the first time is always something magical and when the car is a Ferrari, then it’s really unforgettable. I’d like to thank Ferrari and the FDA for making this day possible and I can’t wait to jump back in a Formula 1 car again in the future.”.
