Abu Dhabi - Formula One teams brought down the shutters on the year's last track action on Wednesday, with new Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc top of the timesheets in a tyre test in Abu Dhabi.
Leclerc has tested previously for Ferrari but the final day of testing was the 21-year-old Monegasque's first in the red car as an official driver for the sport's most glamorous and successful team.
Ferrari announced in September that Leclerc, who raced for Ferrari-powered Sauber this season, would be replacing 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen alongside Sebastian Vettel in 2019.
Ferrari said Leclerc did 135 laps in the now-retired SF71H car, equal to two and a half Abu Dhabi Grand Prix distances, with a best time of one minute 36.450 seconds on Pirelli's hypersoft tyres.
"Of course it was emotional, because driving a Ferrari is special and because this was a day I had been waiting for, for so long without being sure if it would ever happen," he said.
