Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team manager David Redding, said:
“Today was spent completing some of the fundamental tests that we don’t normally get the opportunity to do at race weekends. We also used the time to continue tyre testing and complete a number of reliability prove-outs.
“It was a good day: we did 115 laps and felt the car went well. This week we’ve completed more than 2100km of running, which is impressive. It’s been a pleasing end to a very constructive week.”
