Sergey Sirotkin drove 180 kilometres at Fiorano
Oct.12 (GMM) Sergey Sirotkin "can be happy" after kicking off his quest for a F1 super licence on Friday.
Making use of Sauber's relationship with its engine supplier, Sirotkin was at the wheel of a 2009 Ferrari at the fabled Italian team's own test track.
"Sergey has done quite well, as it was his first time in a Formula One car," said Sauber team boss Monisha Kaltenborn, not referring to Sirotkin's recent running in a straight line and for a demonstration at Sochi.
"He drove 180 kilometres (at Fiorano)," Kaltenborn is quoted by Speed Week, "and even if we don't want to talk about laptimes, I can summarise by saying that he can be happy."
