Magnussen to open second F1 test for McLaren

Kevin Magnussen has revealed he will drive for McLaren on the opening two days of the second pre-season test in Bahrain this week
Kevin Magnussen has announced that he will be carrying out the opening two days of running for McLaren in Bahrain.

With the second test beginning this week, Magnussen confirmed via his Twitter feed that he would drive the car first before handing it over to team-mate Jenson Button half way through the test.




Back-to-back tests in Bahrain kick off on Wednesday, with a four-day gap before the final pre-season test of the season. Magnussen was quickest during the first test at Jerez, setting a best time almost a second faster than Button managed on the opening day and a half after McLaren failed to run on day one.

I'm a huge Button fan, but unlike most Hamilton fans, am not totally blind and deluded enough to come on here and tell everyone that Button is going to SMASH Kevin. I hope and expect Button will come out on top, but am not stupid enough to claim this WILL happen. Kevin looks the business and defo looks like he has the speed. I really want him to do well, but wish he wasn't Button's team mate - cause now I have 2 drivers that I'll be rooting for on the same team!! Want them both to win but don't want them to lose!! haha Anyways, let's just hope McLaren has a better year than last year!
