F1: McLaren confirms Barcelona test lineup

1 Comment

McLaren Honda has confirmed its lineup for the next round of testing at Barcelona from February 19-22.

The team announced on Tuesday that Jenson Button will have the first two days, followed by Fernando Alonso for days three and four.

McLaren seeks to complete more running at the next test than it did at Jerez earlier this month, when the team ran only 79 laps over four days.

Meanwhile Honda held a press conference in Tokyo today to hail the corporate relationship between McLaren and Honda. No further details – a title sponsor or announcement of the team’s impending livery change, for instance – were revealed.

Still, here’s a handful of pics from the event as posted up to Twitter today:
