McLaren F1 2015 car passes crash tests

New McLaren passes crash tests in countdown to the F1 2015 season
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.

Meanwhile, earlier this week the Woking squad finally confirmed its driver line-up for 2015, with Jenson Button retained to partner the returning Fernando Alonso. Kevin Magnussen also stays on, but is now demoted from race driver to test and reserve pilot.
