Abu Dhabi GP: The story behind my weekend
So, that’s pre-season testing complete! The six days have flown by and the next time I’ll be in the car will be during FP1 in Melbourne.
Reflecting further on the progress we’ve made in Barcelona, I feel as ready as I can be for my maiden Grand Prix. Being a rookie, you’d always like more test days, but that’s not how it works.
