McLaren has announced that its 2015 F1 car has passed the mandatory crash tests required by the FIA.

The team, which will use Honda power units next season, is the first to publically confirm that its new car has completed the checks.

McLaren has yet to reveal when its new car will be officially launched, although testing for the new season begins at Jerez on February 1.
