Ferrari has organized two private test days in Imola this Thursday and Friday. The first to hit the track was Charles Leclerc, which in order to comply with the prohibition of driving with cars less than two years old has been uploaded to the SF71-H. Tomorrow is expected to be Carlos Sainz who will take over with the 2018 car.
The specialized website formulapasión.it points out that Leclerc has been forced to stop in the pits due to a transmission problem, in addition to having his session interrupted by the rain. The car was towed to the pits for repair and the Monegasque was able to get back on track in the afternoon.
The test is focused on the aerodynamic work and the correlation between the track and the simulator. This Friday it will be Sainz’s turn, although the Scuderia’s work plan also includes Antonio Fuoco, the Ferrari GT driver.
Meanwhile, the new power unit 065/6 evo It is on the dyno, but it has not yet been put to the test on the track.
