Kubica completed 29 laps, mostly of the 'short layout' of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, and with no reliability issues.
“It’s always a special moment to be the first to drive a new car," said Kubica.
"Today’s focus was on making sure everything worked as planned and to ensure all systems were functional, so performance was not an objective, but the thrill of driving a car like this isn’t diminished.
"The car felt good and I am looking forward to driving it once again later in the season.”
Team principal Frédéric Vasseur expressed his satisfaction with the day's running.
“Today’s work is a crucial step in our preparations for the season and I’m pleased to report the day went as planned," said Vasseur.
"We were able to perform all the checks we set out to do and now we can focus on analysing these first bits of data and prepare for the next test in two weeks’ time.”
The car will next take to the track for the pre-season test in Bahrain from March 12-14, with drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi at the wheel.
