Ricciardo Fastest On First Day Of Rookie Testing At Abu Dhabi

Daniel Ricciardo was fastest on the first day of the “young driver” tests at Abu Dhabi.

He was driving the all conquering 2010 Red Bull car and came out on top.

Most drivers were not testing for super speed, moreover gathering data for the teams, and gathering data for themselves about driving a Formula One car.  For many, it was their first time in the cockpit.

Jules Bianchi, the new Ferrari test driver was at the wheel, as was Sam Bird having his first F1 run with Mercedes Benz.
