Giovinazzi drives an SF15-T at Fiorano

Maranello – The Fiorano circuit provided the backdrop for Antonio Giovinazzi’s track debut with Ferrari, when he got behind the wheel of an SF15-T today. As from the 2017 racing season, Antonio has come onboard at Scuderia Ferrari as its third driver. He ran a test programme, approved by the FIA, aimed at making a comparison between data acquired in the simulator and on track. Once he had finished for the day he said, “it was a wonderful feeling, as this was my first time driving a Formula 1 car. For an Italian, driving out of the pits in a Ferrari is an amazing experience. The actual testing was very interesting, with so many procedures to follow. But the guys in the team were very nice to me and extremely helpful and that made everything much easier. I’d like to thank the whole team.” As permitted within the rules relating to off-season testing, the 2015 car will be running again tomorrow.
