Fernando Alonso tests Toyota LMP1 car at Bahrain

Fernando Alonso got his first LMP1 testing mileage under his belt as the FIA World Endurance Championship’s rookie test got underway in Bahrain on Sunday morning.

The Spaniard, confirmed by Toyota for the test late on Saturday, was sharing the #8 TS050 Hybrid with team regular Sebastien Buemi, who took the car out for its opening run.

Alonso then took over around 40 minutes into the two-hour morning session, largely lapping in the 1m44s and 1m45s before setting a best time of 1m43.709s in his penultimate run, completing a total of 37 laps.

That put him around 1.6 seconds down on the benchmark established by Buemi, 1m42.183s.
