Auto sport reports that Lewis Williamson completes McLaren MP4-23A test at Silverstone, as part of his prize for winning last year’s McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award. Williamson completed 15 laps of the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in damp conditions aboard the same MP4-23A chassis that Lewis Hamilton used to win the 2008 British GP.
“It was ridiculous – lots of power and pretty mind boggling,” he said of his first taste of F1. “But every time I went out in the car I felt happier – I’d edge a little more on the brakes and realise there was more to come. It felt quite slidey to begin with but the closer you get to the limit the less of that there is. You have to be super-smooth because the car’s just so responsive.”
