After a difficult beginning of the first pre-season tests McLaren-Honda was able to fix some issues and complete the plan without significant obstacles. Stoffel Vandorn on the fourth day drove 67 laps, testing rain tires, as well as paractical pit stops.
Kimi Raikkonen was the best in the final day of the first test
“I am happy that Fernando was able to conduct these tests on full days at work and drive enough laps, said Stoffel. – We worked with the settings, learning with each round more and more about the characteristics of the machine.
Thanks to test wet tyres, we tried some settings of the new car for the wet track. I was always comfortable in the car, and now I know how to respond to changing conditions.
Despite the difficult start, I thank the team for their hard work throughout the four days. I am proud of our progress over the last couple of days. I hope we save the form the next tests”.
