Antonio Giovinazzi and Robert Shwartzman were both on track at Fiorano on Tuesday at the wheel of last season’s Ferrari SF21 to familiarize themselves with an F1 single-seater before taking part in free practice sessions this season.
Antonio. Scuderia Ferrari reserve driver Giovinazzi completed his program before the lunch break, after which the Italian returned to the simulator to continue preparations for this coming Friday when he slips into the cockpit of the Haas VF- 22 during the first free practice session of the Italian Grand Prix on the Monza track. It will also be the first time that he will drive a new generation Formula 1.
In the afternoon, it was the turn of Scuderia test driver Robert Shwartzman, back in the 2021 car he had already driven in mid-July at the Mugello circuit. For the Russian too, this test was a preparation for the two free practice sessions during which the driver – who drives under Israeli license – will drive this season’s F1-75 (Ferrari has not yet specified the dates of these taxis).
