United States.- Patricio O’Ward is in Barcelona starting today doing the private Formula 1 test with the McLaren team.

The 23-year-old driver from Monterrey published an image in which he warns that he is already at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Montmeló, to test the MCL35M, the car used by McLaren in the 2021 Formula 1 championship.

In addition to O’Ward, the Spanish Alex Palou takes part in the test, who is immersed in a controversy for having a contract with McLaren and Chip Ganassi Racing.

The pilots will be doing tests until Friday, in which they will try to give their best performance.

“Pato O’Ward and Alex Palou participate this week in a closed test at the MCL35M in Barcelona with our Testing of Previous Cars program,” published the McLaren team.

The royal driver, who runs with the ArrowMcLarenSP team in IndyCar, had already had a test in Formula 1 with the British team, this after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
