Jerez test in numbers - who went fastest, and furthest

31 Jan 2014

One should never read too much into testing times - especially when that test was effectively an extended shake-down, as last week’s Jerez session was for most - but that doesn’t mean they don't make for interesting reading, and Kevin Magnussen will no doubt be more than happy to leave Spain with the quickest overall time after his debut as a McLaren race driver.

Even more interesting, however, in the context of the 2014 regulation changes is which teams completed the most mileage - and with which power unit…
