Ferrari confirm which days driver will take to the track in Barcelona

Unlike last year, Ferrari were sat at the bottom of the timesheets during the first week of winter testing in Barcelona. The Italian team seem to be missing something this year, depending on how many sandbags are on the car. 

Ferrari recorded one of the fewest lap counts in the whole field. They are 140 laps behind Mercedes, virtually a day of track running. They will need to get busy during the second week to ensure they've got all the data they need. 

Red Bull Racing impressed, Mercedes impressed, Racing Point impressed. Ferrari didn't. Use of the classic saying "it's only testing" can be applied here, but Sebastian Vettel and crew didn't seem to be joking around. Series faces on. They've got some work to do if they're to challenge Mercedes this year and they'll have to understand the added downforce on the car before the lights go green in Australia
