McLaren confirm when Ricciardo and Norris will drive in pre-season testing

Daniel Ricciardo's and Lando Norris' driving schedule for winter testing in Bahrain has been announced. The event begins this Friday and runs until Sunday.

McLaren have confirmed the schedule for their drivers at this week's pre-season test in Bahrain. Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris will share driving duties on each of the three days.

Ricciardo will be at the wheel of the new MCL35M first on Friday morning before Norris takes over for the afternoon stint.

Each session is four hours meaning there are eight hours of running on each day of testing. The final hour of the day is set to take place with the floodlights on to replicate the Bahrain Grand Prix night race.

McLaren are aiming to replicate their 2020 success when they finished third in the constructors' championship. They are buoyed by the prospect of switching to Mercedes power which has led them to success in seasons gone by.
