Ferrari junior Antonio Giovinazzi was happy to bend over backwards this week, running with not one but two F1 teams in Barcelona.

The young Italian, who is without a full-time racing programme this season, undertook a 135-lap test programme with Sauber on Tuesday before switching into a pair of red overalls on Wednesday as he contributed to the Scuderia’s workload.
The 24-year-old admitted it was all a bit exhausting, but also well worth it.

“It was a tiring day,” said Giovinazzi after putting an additional 148 laps on the board.
“We did a lot of laps, but I really enjoyed it. Apart from yesterday, driving the Alfa Sauber, I hadn’t driven in an official test session since last year in Abu Dhabi.
“We had an interesting programme to work on, with various things to test and different tyre compounds to try.”
Beyond the hard work and effortful day, Giovinazzi’s overwhelming feeling was one of joy.
“The test was productive and delivered a really big amount of data to correlate with that from the simulator.
“To be at the wheel of a Ferrari is always a privilege and it was a fantastic feeling.”
