Ferrari’s Giovinazzi Tops F1 Test in Hungary

Antonio Giovinazzi set the pace for Ferrari on the opening morning of Formula 1’s post-Hungarian Grand Prix test on Tuesday.

The Italian driver, who appeared for Sauber in first practice at the Hungaroring last Friday, clocked a 1m 19.648s on soft tires in the third hour of running.

That was more than three seconds slower than the fastest time through the race weekend, a 1m 16.170s set by Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel in FP3, as Tuesday’s drivers went about their test programs, wrote.

Giovinazzi usurped McLaren’s Lando Norris at the top of the times and the Formula 2 title contender finished the morning second.

Norris was 0.318s slower on a 1m 19.966s, set on medium tires one and a half hours into the session.

Force India driver Nicholas Latifi completed the top three and was the last man to squeeze below the 1m 20s mark, eventually posting a 1m 19.994s after a series of improvements over the morning on softs.

At the start of the day Latifi was one of three drivers to trial an experimental front wing built to F1’s 2019 regulations.

He completed a multi-lap run with the front wing, while Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Williams tester Oliver Rowland stuck to outlaps with their respective teams’ designs.
