Rookie Kevin Magnussen will be first the first of the McLaren drivers to run the MP4-29 for the first two days of testing in Bahrain this week.

The plan is for Magnussen to be in the cockpit for the first two days starting on 19 February, before handing over to Jenson Button for the final two days of the test.

Magnussen got his first taste of the new McLaren during testing at Jerez last month, where he emerged fastest of all over the four days. (GP247)
