Why did Sainz Drive a 2018 Car at the Ferrari F1 Super Test?


Ferrari kicked off its Formula 1 2021 season preparations in busy style at its Fiorano track recently, with a mammoth test featuring seven drivers over five days. The Italian outfit wasted little time in getting down to business with both current and future drivers, as it ran through a hectic week of running with a 2018 spec F1 car. As well as race-winner Charles Leclerc getting his first run in F1 machinery since the season finale in Abu Dhabi in December, the week offered some firsts for the Prancing Horse squad – new signing Carlos Sainz got his Ferrari debut, whilst the week also contained an emotional outing for youngster Giuliano Alesi.
