He said something similar after his first visit to Maranello at the end of last year, but Carlos Sainz Jr. points out that he will never forget his first test with Ferrari. Ferrari has a rich program on the Fiorano track this week.
During the five-day testing in the 2018 SF71H car, as many as seven drivers need to be changed. Among them, clearly, is the new driver of Ferrari's F1 team for 2021 - Spaniard Carlos Sainz Jr. Carlos had his first experience of driving a Ferrari car on Wednesday, he did over 100 laps on the Fiorano track.
It seems that Sainz is thrilled after all and that the new Ferrari car is really great and that they could achieve a lot of success with such cars and he commented on his day like this: "It is a day I will never forget.
In the morning the alarm rang at dawn because we had some very early meetings before leaving for the trail."
Entering a car
" One of the most special moments was when I came to the track and spotted a Ferrari car with the number 55 on it.
I couldn't wait to jump into it, and the installation circuit was exciting. ” "It simply came to our notice then and I was happy with how the day went. We managed to go through the extended program and I was able to get to know the whole system, the engineers, the mechanics, the steering wheel, as well as all those other procedures that are a little different from the car I drove last season.
” “It was very nice that my father was here at such an important moment in my career. I would like to thank Mattia, Laurent, and everyone at Ferrari for such a warm welcome and a positive first day in the 2018 car.
I am very happy and could not have wished for a better start, ”said Carlos. Ferrari is Sainzu's fourth team in Formula 1 after Toro Ross, Renault, and McLaren, and will become the third Spaniard to race for the legendary Maranello team.
Marquis Alfonso de Portago and Fernando Alonso have experienced this before. Sainz will try to achieve an even better result this season and help his team achieve what they envisioned. Sainz is a really great driver with a pronounced intelligence and he should be even better this season.
