The first day of the Pirelli tyre test at Imola saw Esteban Ocon driving for Alpine, Guanyu Zhou at Alfa Romeo and AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly. The four drivers tested the 2023 prototype tyres – all of them being the slick (dry) compounds.
Ocon completed 122 laps in all with Zhou doing 120 and Gasly doing 121 to make it a total of 363 laps. The second day saw Ferrari join the party with Alpine not running where both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz got the chance to test the tyres.
