2014 Barcelona: McLaren Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap


Driver Stoffel Vandoorne
Location Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (4.655km)
Laps/km 136/633
Best laptime 1m28.441s

Programme This week’s post-race test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya concluded today.

Today’s programme had been exclusively reserved for Pirelli tyre testing, with driving duties undertaken by the team’s reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne, who had his first-ever run in a Formula 1 car today.

It was a successful and trouble-free day, Stoffel impressing the team with his maturity, feedback and pace. He went on to complete 136 laps - more than any other driver - running all his tyre testing on Pirelli’s Hard compound, while all other cars used Medium or Soft tyres.

By completing more than 600km, Stoffel today accrued enough mileage (300km) to earn himself a Formula 1 Superlicence.

Speaking afterwards, Stoffel said:

"This has been a fantastic day for me: my first experience in a Formula 1 car, and a really great opportunity to get plenty of laps under my belt.

"I want to say a big thank-you to the team - everyone has been incredibly helpful and positive. It’s also great to have been able to contribute to the test programme: 136 laps today was a fantastic achievement, and it’s great that it’s earned me my Formula 1 Superlicence.

"Now my focus turns towards my next event - the GP2 races in Monte-Carlo next Friday and Saturday. I’m looking forward to bouncing back from a tricky weekend in Barcelona, and would love to get some great results in Monaco."
