Programme

A continuation of yesterday's programme, running the new front wing, floor and top body. The team focused on pitstop practice in the early morning while the track was still damp before continuing the set-up work conducted on Monday. Lewis joins the test tomorrow and will run a similar programme to today.

"We are running through a big programme in Barcelona this week," said McLaren Racing managing director Jonathan Neale. "Not only have we introduced a new series of aerodynamic components to MP4-24 but we have also been working on the car's set-up and balance over longer runs as well as rehearsing our pitstop procedures. It's been a very productive few days with Heikki in the car and we are hoping for an equally satisfactory conclusion to the week when Lewis takes to the track tomorrow."

Driver for day three Lewis
Duration of test Four days (March 9-12)
