Scuderia Ferrari completed a two-day testing outing at its own test track in Fiorano. The Italian squad put correlation work on its agenda and carried out a couple of runs despite to the rainy, cold weather conditions

Ferrari fired up its two-year old model SF15-T in Fiorano to complete a test. The programme was based on correlation work which aimed to evaluate the data gathered in the simulator and compare that with the real on-track data.

Ferrari's newly recruited third driver Antonio Giovinazzi drove on the first day while on the second day the driving duties were shared by the Italian in the morning and the team's last champion Kimi Räikkönen who took over the wheel for the afternoon.

The SF15-T was in standard configuration, which means the team did not run its 'mule' car which mimiced the downforce levels expected in 2017.

23-year-old Giovinazzi sounded delighted after the test.

„It was a nice feeling to complete the first laps in a Formula 1 car. It is a unique experience for an Italian to leave the garage with a Ferrari."

"The test itself was also interesting. There were many procedures which I had to follow. The guys were very friendly and made my life easy. I want to say a big thank you for that to the whole team,” said the man from Martina Franca.

Ferrari will continue to work on 9th and 10th February when it evaluates Pirelli's wet weather tyres for the forthcoming season.
