Carlos Sainz wraps-up Bahrain in-season test

He worked on the 2020 tyres in the morning hours before turning his attention in the afternoon to the development of the MCL34

  • Carlos completed 81 laps in total in the second and final day of in-season testing in Bahrain.
  • In the morning hours he gathered 60 laps, all of them working on the development of the tyre change for the next season.
  • In the afternoon, he put another 21 laps under his belt as he further worked in the development of the MCL34.


"No rain in the desert meant we could enjoy a normal day of testing today. In the morning, I completed a good programme to test the Pirelli compounds. I switched to the McLaren test car in the afternoon for the last hour of the test and completed part of the runs I missed yesterday due to the rain. In general, I would say this has been a productive and positive test for us. We’ve managed to gather valuable data to analyse back at the factory. Now it’s a couple of days to recharge batteries and we’ll be back for the Chinese Grand Prix next week".
