Following yesterday’s 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.
