Kvyat completes first Ferrari run-out

Daniil Kvyat has performed his first on-track duties with Ferrari after completing a Pirelli wet tyre test at Fiorano on Friday. 

The Russian was a surprise signing for the Scuderia in the off-season, with the axed Toro Rosso driver securing a development role with the team.

Kvyat had been restricted to simulator work since signing in January, but got behind the wheel of the SF71-H for the first time this season as part of a tyre development test.

Antonio Giovinazzi, who is still on the books at Ferrari, initially took the Ferrari for a spin on Thursday before handing over to Kvyat.
