Programme

With Oliver behind the wheel for the whole day, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes completed 85 laps with good, consistent running.

The day's programme started with a number of acclimatisation runs, along with aero and tyre data-gathering for the rest of the week. The team then ran different fuel loads for the new fuel system in 2011. A break for lunch was followed by set-up work.

Driver for day two - Gary Paffett
