Antonio Giovinazzi at work in Abu Dhabi – Day 2, 2019 tyre testing
The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team has concluded the second day of testing at Abu Dhabi, with Antonio Giovinazzi behind the wheel of the Sauber C37. Giovinazzi completed a total of 128 laps throughout the day, with a focus on tyre testing.
Similar to yesterday’s programme, the runs today comprised a combination of driving on the 2019 tyre casing, including different compounds, and obtaining a reference to the 2018 tyre compound selection. A mechanical issue briefly interrupted Giovinazzi’s session, however, it was quickly resolved, allowing him to get back on track promptly.
Antonio Giovinazzi delivered a good and consistent performance, and gave his feedback throughout the day, supporting the team in the preparation for the 2019 season.
