Leclerc eager for more F1 tests after "dream" Ferrari debut
Ferrari junior Charles Leclerc says making his Formula 1 test debut with the Maranello squad was a "dream come true" for him.
The Monegasque driver was named as a development driver for both Ferrari and Haas earlier this year.
Leclerc, who will race in GP3 with ART in 2016, got behind the wheel of a 2014 Ferrari F1 car at Fiorano earlier this week, completing over 300km of testing.
"It was an amazing day," Leclerc told Motorsport.com. "It was my first time in a Formula 1 car and it was just a dream come true to have my first Formula 1 day in a Ferrari.
"Apart from this, everything went really well during the day.
"I have to say I didn't struggle that much to adapt to the car but the main differences to everything I've tried before is the power of the engine and the power steering."
The 18-year-old said he was not sure when he will get another chance to drive F1 machinery.
"I am ready for it, but nothing is planned for the moment," he added.
"For the moment, as a development driver for Ferrari, I'm doing the simulator work in the factory to help them, but when I'm on the GP3 weekends my focus will remain on GP3 only."
