Lewis Hamilton took over from 2008 teammate Heikki Kovalainen on Monday as McLaren conduct straight line tests this week on the runway of a Spanish island.

At the Aeroclub de Mahon, located on the small Mediterranean Sea island of Menorca, the 23-year-old British driver was watched on by locals as he practiced manual starts and braking with no electronic assistance with the MP4-23.

McLaren wrapped up the test on Monday evening, but Renault, with former world champion and Spanish hero Fernando Alonso, is expected to arrive at Menorca next Wednesday.
