Kevin Magnussen will not take part in any FP1 sessions for McLaren this season after being demoted to test and reserve driver.

McLaren opted to retain Jenson Button alongside Fernando Alonso when selecting its driver line-up for 2015, with Honda returning as power unit supplier to the team. That saw Magnussen dropped after just one year of racing, and although McLaren kept the 22-year-old as part of the team Magnussen revealed via Twitter that he would not get any track time during race weekends this year.
