Martin Whitmarsh, McLaren CEO, comments on the team's test this week at Jerez

Martin Whitmarsh:

"Another productive session this week as we finished our testing programme for the 2006 season, with Pedro and Lewis in attendance over the two day session. Both drivers worked through final Brazil tyre evaluation with Michelin alongside various developments programmes for our 2007 car the MP4-22."

"There have been a few red flag stoppages during the week but that aside the clear and hot weather conditions have allowed us to cover good mileage and we have gained some positive intelligence about the MP4-22 package. Despite spending some time in the garage whilst the team worked on a minor oil leak, Pedro managed to successfully complete his scheduled programme."

"Although this is the final in-season allocated test day, the team will continue to push hard with several straight line tests and other work focused towards 2007 in the coming weeks. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the test team for their hard work over the past season."
