‘I needed to get that physical impression of speed’ says Leclerc after Mugello test – Formula 1 RSS UK



Leclerc and Vettel return to the track at Ferrari’s Mugello test

After the day’s running, Leclerc said he had been missing the feeling of hitting the speeds possible in an F1 car.

“How great was that, getting back on track for real,” he said. “I’d missed it! Even though I’ve been pretty busy with virtual racing during this long break, I needed to once again get that physical impression of speed.

“Being able to drive on such a spectacular track as Mugello, for the first time at the wheel of a Formula 1 car, helped to make this day even more memorable. Now, we’re looking ahead to the season and as from next week, things get serious!”
