Ferrari duo Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz go on a ride at the fastest rollercoaster in the world and have a fun time at the Ferrari World.

Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz visited the world-famous Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi right after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2021.

The duo was a part of a thrilling race where Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the world championship in extraordinary style. He snatched the victory from Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton on the very last lap of the race.

Carlos Sainz also finished on the podium place while teammate Leclerc finished tenth after a below-par performance.

However, as soon as the F1 season’s curtains closed, both the Ferrari drivers made a visit to enjoy the Ferrari World.
