SERGIO SETTE CAMARA, #47
“Driving the McLaren Formula 1 car was an amazing opportunity for me today. I was able to learn some new procedures, see how the car felt and do a few flying laps.
"It’s a shame we had to cut the day short, but from my side I learned a lot and I’m really happy to have had the chance to drive a car like that. Thank you to everyone at McLaren for the experience and I hope to be able to repeat it again in the future.”
OLIVER TURVEY, #48
“It was great to be back in the car for my first run this year. With all the simulator work I’ve been doing with the team, it’s great to get a feeling for the actual car and give some feedback to the race engineers at the track.
"It’s also helpful for correlation with the simulator, which we can work on when I get back to the factory. This test has been useful for the rest of the season as we continue to develop the MCL34.”
ANDREA STELLA, Performance Director
“Today was another useful day of testing with Oliver and Sergio at the wheel. Both of them adapted very quickly to the car and did a good job in helping us to complete our test programme, together with providing some interesting feedback on the behaviour of the car.
“The programme was once again fundamentally focussed on gathering data on the aerodynamics of the car and some set-up items in preparation for the coming races.
“The day’s running ended slightly earlier than planned due to an issue with the car that we are currently investigating. Despite this, it was a smooth couple of days.”
The team heads back to the factory to analyse the data from the two days of testing and prepare for the Monaco Grand Prix.
Two days (Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 May 2019).
