First look at Carlos Sainz driving a Ferrari!
Preparations for 2021 are already underway in Maranello.
Carlos Sainz Jr has driven the wheel of a Ferrari F1 car for the first time ever as he gets ready to join the famous Italian team for the 2021 F1 season.
As part of preparations for the upcoming season, Ferrari are testing their new driver Carlos Sainz in a 2018 Ferrari car at Maranello in Italy, just over a month before pre-season testing in Bahrain begins.
Sainz, who drove for Toro Rosso in 2015-2017, Renault in 2018, then moved to McLaren for the following years, is no stranger to joining new teams.
The Spaniard will be hoping that this extra running in the Ferrari can help him adjust to his new car and engineers that he has inherited from the departing Sebastian Vettel, who has joined Aston Martin for 2022.
