McLaren to sit out of Thursday test

After the Barcelona test session was recently extended to five days, although the teams are only allowed to run for four of them. The majority of the team have decided to stick with the initially planned Tuesday-Friday dates, while Ferrari, Mercedes GP, Williams and Hispania F1 have chosen to run from Wednesday to Saturday. However, McLaren, have now announced that they will miss Thursday’s test, instead choosing to run Tuesday-Wednesday and Friday-Saturday in a move that they say will allow them more time to transport any required parts to the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona. Jenson Button will be at the wheel of the MP4-26 on Tuesday and Friday, and Lewis Hamilton on Wednesday and Saturday.
