Pietro Fittipaldi participated this Wednesday (15) in Formula 1 tests at the Yas Marina circuit. The driver completed 123 laps throughout the day in Abu Dhabi in the Haas car equipped with the new 18-rim tyres, larger than those used until last Sunday.
“We ended the day of testing in Abu Dhabi and completed 123 laps. There were a lot of laps and I'm very happy with the way the test went. We learned a lot with this bigger tire from 2022. It's very interesting and we got a lot of information for next year," said Pietro, right after the end of activities in the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
“For my part, I was also very happy to be very competitive. We did a qualifying simulation around noon and a half, a very hot time on the track, and even so our weather was very good. In race simulation, we were also strong on the track”, followed the Haas driver, who thanked the American team for the opportunity to participate in the tests.
“This is important, always having the opportunity to drive. So, I want to thank the team for giving me this chance. It was a fantastic day and these big tires are interesting, it will be an extra challenge next year”, added Pietro, who has two Formula 1 starts under his belt, as well as participation in championships such as Indy, the World Endurance and to Stock Car.
The 2022 season of Formula 1 will open on March 20th, with the Bahrain Grand Prix held in Sakhir.
