Kimi Räikkönen at work in Abu Dhabi Day 1, 2019 tyre testing


Abu Dhabi, 27th November 2018 - The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team has concluded the first day of testing at Abu Dhabi with Kimi Räikkönen in the cockpit of the Sauber C37. The Finnish driver completed a total of 102 laps throughout the day, becoming familiar with the car and the team's operating systems.


The programme was focused on tyre testing - running the 2019 tyre casing, as well as different compounds from the current selection. With Räikkönen's feedback and the collected data, the team has obtained a good reference in preparation for the upcoming season.


In the final run, the team finished just a few minutes ahead of schedule, without compromising the test programme. The causes are still under investigation.


Tomorrow it will be Antonio Giovinazzi's turn to drive for day two of the test at the Yas Marina Circuit.
