Louis Delétraz described the post Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as “a pretty amazing day” as the Swiss completed 117 laps in the Haas F1 Team.

Delétraz, who had finished tenth in the Formula 2 World Championship, was making his debut in a Formula One car at the Yas Marina Circuit.

“It was a pretty amazing day. It was my first Formula One test.

“It’s been a dream since I was a kid.”

The Swiss driver says the test was “another step forward” and that he enjoyed the experience.

“It’s another step forward and the day went very well.

“We recorded 117 laps, which is a lot of tire testing and a lot of data.

“I did my best, and I hope the team is happy with my efforts. I really enjoyed it.”

Delétraz states that reaching F1 is the aim and he feels he learned a lot in the test that can help him.

“Physically, I was fine. I didn’t struggle at all.

“I got to know I was testing around a month ago, but I’ve been preparing for this anyway.

“Formula One is always the objective. It’s been a great day and it’s been even better to share it with my long-term sponsor, ADSS. I think we both learned a lot today.

“It’s good for the future. It’s been a day we’ll always remember.”
