Haas and McLaren have become the latest teams to shake down their new 2022 challengers, as they took to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya to give their VF-22 and MCL36 cars their first ever laps.

    Haas opted to use a filming day to run their car for the first time in Spain, with Nikita Mazepin the first to get behind the wheel of the VF-22, which was launched in digital render form on February 4.

    Like Haas, McLaren also opted to give their new car – the MCL36, which was launched on February 11 at a live show from their factory in Woking – its first taste of the track in Spain, with Lando Norris behind the wheel.

    Both Haas and McLaren will try their cars in more representative conditions when pre-season running begins at the same circuit on February 23 – with Haas due to show off the physical car to the press in the Barcelona pit lane ahead of the start of the action.
