McLaren Mercedes Side ViewLewis Hamilton: “It has been over a week since the team’s last test, which seems like a long time at this time of year, and it is great to get back out on track in Spain. The weather during the morning was fantastic and we were able to work through large amounts of the aerodynamics program in the good conditions…

“The car felt fine, it was interesting to see how it has moved on in the month since we were last in Jerez. We received a number of new components from the McLaren Technology Centre at around lunchtime, and the test team worked hard to incorporate them to the cars, allowing Pedro and I to get back out on track with these developments. These components were made overnight and sent out to us in Spain, which shows how relentless the pace is within the team at the moment as we push towards Australia. We have another two days here and there is a lot we need to get done.”

Pedro de la Rosa: “Whilst I have not been in the car since mid-January, I have been heavily involved in the off track development process and getting back behind the wheel today really allowed me to see the areas where we have made progress and the areas where we still have work to do. We had a productive day here in Jerez, working on aero and set-up programs.”
