Antonio Fuoco: “I am very angry with myself”

1 Mins read

Antonio Fuoco admitted making a mistake that saw him end his first day testing a Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 car with a damaged car in the turn one barriers.

The young Italian Ferrari Driver Academy driver lost control of his SF15-T after touching the turn one kerbs, which were probably still wet following the rain that caused the morning to be a wash out at the Red Bull Ring, and ended up damaging the front end of the Ferrari as a result.

Fuoco ended the day with the fourth fastest time, and thanked Ferrari for allowing him to make his testing debut with the team on Tuesday.

“I am very angry with myself for making a mistake today,” said Fuoco, “but getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari has always been my dream and today it finally came true.

“All the same, I am pleased with the work I was able to do, gathering useful data for the team, even if the rain affected our programme today.

“I would like to thank Scuderia Ferrari for the opportunity they have given me.”
