Sebastian Vettel has made his first appearance as a Ferrari driver at Maranello, driving a 2012 car at the team's Fiorano test track.

Having been announced as a Ferrari driver ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Vettel was present in the garage during the post-race test but blocked from driving the F14 T by Red Bull. As a result, Kimi Raikkonen and Raffaele Marciello carried out testing duties for the team over the two days.

However, following the test Vettel has travelled to Maranello and on Saturday drove the F2012, with F1 testing regulations allowing the running of a two-year-old car.
