Programme

First run for the MP4-25, the team's 2010 challenger. The principal focus for the day was putting mileage on the new car. With Gary behind the wheel for the whole day, the team completed 86 laps without any mechanical issues.

The day's programme started with a number of shorter five-lap runs to establish a benchmark for the day. Into the afternoon, the team were increasingly confident with the car's reliability and conducted some longer runs, looking at a greater variety of set-up configurations.

Gary declared himself happy with the car's balance and handling. Tomorrow, Lewis picks up the programme, continuing the initial work and focusing on reliability and set-up.

Driver for day two - Lewis Hamilton

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