The final day of the post-season tyre test ended with George Russell quickest for Mercedes and Charles Leclerc crashing into the barriers for Ferrari.
Leclerc was forced to cut short his afternoon running at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi when his SF90 collided with the barrier at Turn 12/13.
Leclerc walked away from the incident unscathed but the red flags came out so his Ferrari could be loaded onto a recovery truck back to the garage.
The 22-year-old had completed 103 laps prior to the accident with Ferrari already gathering enough data on the 2019 and 2020 Pirelli tyre compounds.
