A day to cherish

The number 55, test drove the 2018 Ferrari car around the Ferrari track at Maranello to see how quickly he can adjust to the car and to get a feel of Ferrari ahead of the season opener in Bahrain.

Earlier this month he again went to Fiorano to test drive the car again, and this team with his new teammate, Charles Leclerc. Ahead of his debut for Ferrari, Leclerc thinks he doesn’t need to give any advice to his Spanish teammate.

The Spanish driver helped Mclaren to finish third in the constructor’s championship last season, the team’s best finish in recent years. He hopes to bring that same momentum going into 2021 to help Ferrari be back on top.

The Long Haul

After a terrible 2020 season, they saw themselves 6th in the constructor’s table with just 131 points to its name, their worst finish in 4 decades in their history of F1. The team having a driver like Sainz and his mentality is needed to help Ferrari find their way back to the top of the grid and fight for the championship.
