Test report - Silverstone Day 2, 9 July 2014
|Date||Wednesday July 9 2014|
|Location||Silverstone Circuit (5.891km)|
Following yesterday’s successful opening day of testing with Stoffel Vandoorne, McLaren race driver Kevin Magnussen took the wheel today for the second, and final, day of post-race testing at Silverstone.
The morning’s programme kicked off with some aerodynamic tests, which included completing several runs with a large measuring rake fitted behind the front wheels to measure airflow.
In a similar afternoon programme to yesterday, the post-lunch session was spent completing a number of runs to understand and evaluate different Pirelli tyre compounds.
Kevin rounded out the day by completing 91 laps and a number of productive long runs, which will arm the team with some useful data ahead of next week’s German Grand Prix.
