McLaren race drivers to miss Mugello

McLaren to run Oliver Turvey and Gary Paffett during in-season F1 test at Mugello
McLaren has confirmed that it won't use its race drivers for the in-season test that will take place before the European leg of the F1 season.

The three-day session will take place at the Mugello circuit in Italy from 1-3 May ahead of the first European event of the campaign at Catalunya, and is the only test during the season where teams can run their race drivers.

Despite that, McLaren has confirmed that Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button will both sit out the test, with the team instead electing to make use of its test drivers for the session.

Oliver Turvey and Gary Paffett will therefore be in action during the test, where all twelve teams are expected to appear.

Some drivers prefer to test the car themselves. Others don't. It seems McLaren drivers don't. RedBull drivers like to do the testing themselves. Posted by Angelina - Unregistered (1 hour 21 minutes ago) Angelina, if that is the case would you mind explaining the presence of Button and Hamilton during winter testing if don't they like to test the cars themselves?
