Antonio Fuoco enjoyed testing with Ferrari today

Antonio Fuoco made his Ferrari F1 debut today after a successful testing session in Barcelona. The Italian clocked 120 laps and finished the day with a lap time of 1:17.284. The 22-year-old academy driver replaced Charles Leclerc and finished the day third fastest. 

“It was a positive day,” said the Italian to PlanetF1.“We completed various tests and ran a total of 120 laps.

“In terms of the program, we concentrated on short runs with different tyre compounds in the morning followed by longer runs in the afternoon and performance runs at the end of the day.

“The car felt really good to drive.

“It will be important for us to analyse the data we collected today, as well as the correlation with the simulator, given that I do a lot of work in it.

“I really enjoyed the day and would like to thank the team for this opportunity.”

Fuoco will hope that he has impressed Ferrari enough to get invited back in the future.
