Gary - 1m23.349 at 16:30

Gary joined Lewis at the Circuit de Catalunya today, as the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes test team kicked off this week's test at the challenging Barcelona track. The main programme for the day saw the pair focus on tyre evaluation with Bridgestone, with the Circuit de Catalunya providing a more high speed and abrasive surface compared to the previous test sessions. Today was Gary's first run in the MP4-23, and it was also his first test without driver aids. As a result Gary spent some time during the day familiarising himself with the 2008 package and during this process had a couple of minor spins.

Earlier in the week the MP4-23 successfully passed all its FIA homologation tests required for the car to compete in the 2008 season.
