Ferrari with a flying start: why Sainz and Leclerc are driving / Formula 1

Ferrari with a flying start: why Sainz and Leclerc are driving / Formula 1

The famous Formula 1 racing team is in action: reserve Robert Shwartzman and GP winners Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are on the Ferrari test track in Fiorano.

No winter test break for Formula 1: Ferrari has planned a three-day test at the Fiorano factory test track to get reserve driver Robert Shwartzman and regular drivers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc fit for the season. Monegasse Leclerc had sipped a little through the cocoa: “I’m fat.”

Despite the winter break of Formula 1, such a test is not prohibited: Because Shwartzman, who was born in Israel and grew up in Russia, the Spaniard and the Monegasque are sitting on the GP race from 2021, Ferrari SF21.

Ferrari has regularly organized such tests in recent years to get drivers, mechanics and engineers up to speed.

On January 24, Shwartzman (2019 Formula 3 champion and 2021 Formula 2 runner-up) completed only 77 laps, it was raining and cold in Fiorano.

Like Italian Antonio Giovinazzi, 23-year-old Robert will be the reserve driver for the 2023 GP season if Sainz or Leclerc are unable to play.

On the 25th of January the work with Carlos Sainz will continue.
