McLaren expect to run on Wednesday

2014 F1 season

McLaren MP4-29, front, high, 2014McLaren say they expect to begin their pre-season testing programme on Wednesday after the MP4-29 failed to turn a wheel on Tuesday.

McLaren said their car was “predominantly affected by electrical issues during the day” which kept it from running.

“The subsequent dismantling, inspection and re-installation of several major components ultimately meant we were unable to conduct any running today,” added McLaren in a statement.

McLaren said they will re-install key systems on the MP4-29 tonight and expect Jenson Button will be able to drive the car tomorrow.

    Is there any truth to the rumour that they left the keys to the car back in the uk?

    Boullier was right when he said some teams won’t be ready for Jerez …

      Indeed @paeschli, and it will be interesting to see who gets more out of winter testing – the teams who potentially rushed cars to Jerez that weren’t ready to go, or Lotus, who took an early decision to miss the first test in exchange for more time back at the factory.

  3. im not at all surprised that that they are not ready, new engine new nose and amount other changes, its alot to do and get ready, more over the engine, every lap is one in to the unknown
