Programme

Second day of testing for the MP4-25. Lewis Hamilton returned to the cockpit for the first time since the end of the 2009 season, completing 108 laps of the Ricardo Tormo circuit during a very busy and productive day of testing.

The team continued with the programme started by Gary Paffett yesterday, focusing on car set-up and understanding the difference in balance caused by the heavier fuel-loads and narrower 2010-spec front tyres.

Lewis declared himself happy with the car’s performance and reliability.

For the third and final day of this week’s test, world champion Jenson Button will take the wheel – his first drive at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes.

Driver for day three - Jenson Button

Duration of test - Three days (February 1-3)
