Ferrari gives Bianchi a Test Run
For formula one driver Jules Bianchi, it was a red letter day, at Silverstone this week. Bianchi was chosen to deputize for the injured Kimi Raikkonen on the final day of in season testing when Frenchman donned Ferrari’s famous scarlet uniform. Bianchi drives for Marussia team, back of the grid, as by CNN, when he received a phone call on Monday evening, which asked him to stand in for the Finn who is suffering from a bruising crash in Sunday’s British Grand Prix. For the audition of the future drive of Ferrari in most probably 2016, it was seen as is big chance.
Jules Bianchi said after stepping out of the Ferrari that he was consistent and doing good lap time. He also said that he showed the whole team that he can work well and also can be quick, but not to compare him with other drivers as it was a day of testing. He also told that the target was just to improve the car and help the team, and he had done his job with that and he is really happy with what he has done.
It is also not for the first time that Bianchi has driven in a test for Italian Marque, who has been under the club of Ferrari Academy since 2010. He was chosen to replace Kimi Raikkonen, but the call up has seemed up extra significant who said that he still wanted to fulfill his testing duties and tasks. Fernando Alonso, the team’s No.1 de facto was not brought back to England to help the crucial final test of season’14.
When Jules Bianchi was hopeful that his testing performance might lead to his promotion to Ferrari seat, he said that he will be ready on that day. He also said that he have to show them up as he consider him a part of academy, and in that regard, it is then a target. If they have two drivers and both of them are doing the right job, then Jules Bianchi didn’t think it’s the plan. His only focus for the moment is that what he has to do with Marussia with concentration. And he said it is really important to keep on going in the same manner.
Jules Bianchi is also hopeful that his performance for Ferrari in the Silverstone Formula one test will boost his chances of a race seat with the Scuderia in the future. Bianchi completed 89 laps during the test, setting a best mark of 1m35.262s, faster than either of Ferrari’s regular drivers managed during the British GP weekend.
It is not an easy matter to stay in Formula One but Jules Bianchi is hoping that he has shown enough to Ferrari, so that they know that I deserve to stay in. Bianchi made his debut last season with the team Marussia, which uses Ferrari Engines and impressed a lot.
If Jules Bianchi is ready to represent the future, then there is no wonder that Ferrari world is also looking ahead.
