Shwartzman improves own Fiorano time by half a second during Ferrari test

Ferrari took the time today to let some young talents test the 2018 SF71-H. Of the three drivers, Robert Shwartzman was clearly the fastest. Giuliani Alesi and Marcus Armstrong also made their appearance in Ferrari red.

Strong performance by Shwartzman

Shwartzman made a big impression on Ferrari's Fiorano test track. The young Russian improved his September time by over half a second in the same car, reports the Italian branch of Motorsport.com. Shwartzman drove a total of about fifty laps.

Alesi and Armstrong drove a lot less laps: both were around fifteen laps. Alesi was the first driver of the day and therefore had to contend with a smoother track than his colleagues.

Shwartzman will be aiming for F2 title in 2021

Shwartzman is seen as one of the great talents who will compete for the championship in Formula 2 with the Prema team in 2021. In 2020, the Russian will be a teammate of Mick Schumacher, who will drive for Haas in Formula 1 this year.
