Magnussen tops day 1 of Young Driver test
Kevin Magnussen and McLaren topped the first day of Formula 1's Silverstone young driver test. The Dane had not been a factor at the head of the timesheets until the final 20 minutes, when he bolted on medium tires and set a 1m33.602s that would prove unmatched for the remainder of the session.

Meanwhile, American Alexander Rossi continued to have his potential F1 career ruined when his Caterham bucket of bolts failed him before he could bolt on softer rubber.

“After the installation lap we were straight into the program, running through a number of test items in both the morning and afternoon sessions that will help the team in the coming races. We didn’t have any reliability issues until late in the day when we had a hydraulics problem and that unfortunately meant I didn’t have a chance to put in a really quick lap, but we were still able to complete most of the day’s plan and that’s good, for the team and for me as it means we have both got pretty much everything we could from day one of the test.”
