Sainz and Leclerc in action at Bahrain

Ferrari is currently completing an extensive week of testing at the Italian circuit of Fiorano with not only current drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz but also Mick Schumacher and many juniors from its training programme.

Ferrari is testing at Fiorano from Monday 25 to Friday 29 January. Monday it was the turn of Giuliano Alesi, Marcus Armstrong and Robert Shwartzman. Tuesday it was Leclerc's turn, Wednesday and Thursday Sainz sat in the Ferrari for the first time. Mick Schumacher was allowed to sit on Thursday and Friday and Calum Ilott closed the five-day test.

Film day in Bahrain

The Italian branch of Motorsport.com, however, also reports today that Ferrari has scheduled a film day at the circuit on 11 March, one day before the official start of the winter tests in Bahrain. Leclerc and Sainz will then already be in action with the SF21. In total the drivers are allowed to cover a maximum of one hundred kilometres on the Bahrain International Circuit in the new Ferrari. Yet another small advantage.
