Carlos Sainz wraps up pre-season with another 76 laps in Bahrain

2023 Bahrain F1 Test Days, Day 3

  • Carlos Sainz finished the third and final day of pre-season testing in Bahrain. He set his fastest lap-time in the C4 tyre compound, even though lap-times are not important in these sessions.
  • The Ferrari race driver worked across different set-ups in his SF-23 to get to know his new car and optimize it for next week’s Bahrain GP.
  • Reliability was perfect throughout each and every test day and Carlos was able to gather 1,179 kilometres without any issues at all.

“We finished the test without any issue and completing the full run plan that we had for these three days, so first of all, thank you very much to the entire team here and in Maranello. Today we focused on both short and long runs to finish the assessment of some of the parameters that we wanted to test. Now we will focus in analyzing the data to arrive as prepared as possible to the first GP of the year. I’m looking forward to racing here next week".
