Programme

With sunny blue skies and hot temperatures throughout the day, the team started its final test of the year with the weather perfectly replicating the conditions expected in Australia later this month. With Lewis at the wheel, the day's programme began with the evaluation of a number of new, subtle aerodynamic modifications. After lunch, Lewis ran a series of longer runs in order to assess the new aero package's effectiveness on tyre degradation.

Driver for day two Lewis
Duration of test Four days (March 16-19)
