Gary Paffett: "So it’s great to get back in the car – it’s invaluable for us to make sure we are going in the right direction.”
After Kevin Magnussen and Oliver Turvey each drove for a day, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes test and development driver Gary Paffett took to the cockpit of the MP4-28.
The team continued with its aerodynamic program, evaluating ride mechanical set-up changes, both of which should provide plenty of data for the engineers to analyse in preparation for next week’s Hungarian GP.
Gary said: “It was great to get out in the afternoon and get some testing done after the engine issue we had this morning. The guys in the garage did a great job.
“It was a real treat to drive the car – most of the work we do nowadays is on the simulator in Woking. We get very limited time out on track. So it’s great to get back in the car – it’s invaluable for us to make sure we are going in the right direction.”
