McLaren CEO Martin Whitmarsh summarizes the team's thre-day test at Barcelona

"This week saw the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes race team travel to Barcelona. We completed a number of race simulations, including Grand Prix specific activities such as pit stop practice as the team acclimatise themselves to the new equipment for 2007."

"Alongside this preparatory work, the development programme for the MP4-22 continued apace with Fernando, Lewis and Pedro putting more miles onto the package as we work through our scheduled programme."

"In addition to the work on track, Pedro has spent time at the McLaren Technology Centre today working with the engineers in Woking on a simultaneous programme to that being run by Fernando and Lewis, as we push hard on all fronts to maximise the performance of this car."

"The Circuit de Catalunya is the first genuine high speed track we have tested at this year, so it has been an interesting week and we have gained some useful intelligence on the car prior to testing moving to Bahrain."
