Ferrari’s new 2021 signing getting his first taste of one of their cars at Fiorano on Wednesday; Scuderia’s race-winning 2018 challenger being used for five days of testing with seven drivers; Charles Leclerc returned to action on Tuesday.
Leclerc, who had been in Dubai and contracted coronavirus earlier this month, said: “Getting back in the car today was great, in fact it was brilliant!
“Seeing my mechanics again, putting the race suit on, doing my warm-up routine, putting on my helmet and finally jumping in the car and pressing the starter button… the sound of a Ferrari engine is always magic.
“The day was simply perfect and we got through all the work we had planned to do. I really enjoyed myself! Now I hand over to Carlos and I wish him the best of luck for tomorrow.”
