From the F1 website:

McLaren’s Sergio Perez set the pace on day two of this week's pre-season test at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona on Wednesday.

Perez completed 97 laps of the Spanish circuit in the new MP4-28 as the Mexican driver worked to improve his understanding of both his new car and his new team.

In the morning he completed shorter runs with the aim of gaining the engineers a better understanding of the car’s track-to-tunnel aero correlation and its reaction to a series of mechanical set-up changes.

Then, in the afternoon, he completed a number of longer runs in order to gain a better understanding of the methods and systems that will be used by the race team during a race weekend, including cockpit switch adjustments and understanding radio messaging. His best run was set during this session using Pirelli’s soft-compound tyres.


Although this is of questionable predictive value, it's better than being second.

Let's hope for a great season for McDaddy and his children.
