Guanyu Zhou brought the last bit of track action of 2021 to an end as it completed a successful post-season test in Abu Dhabi. The session, hosted on the Yas Marina Circuit, allowed the team to put the new 18" Pirelli tyres to the test, gathering important data on one of the most crucial elements of the 2022 regulation revolution.
Vettel caused the only red flag on Wednesday, stopping on track with a technical issue just before midday, but returning to action soon after.
The lack of stoppages ensured there were some big totals in terms of laps, with Pierre Gasly, Carlos Sanz, Fernando Alonso and Guanyu Zhou all within three laps of each other. Next year's Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN driver line-up of Guanyu Zhou drove a total of 150 laps in a modified 2019 C38, after completing 119 laps in the C41 on Tuesday as part of the Young Drivers' Test.
With the 2021 season now fully in the archives, it's time to head back home and enjoy a short break for the holidays before the adrenalinic rush to the first pre-season test. 2022 is going to be here quick.
