Following last weekend’s British Grand Prix, a flurry of activity took place at Silverstone on Tuesday as several teams took part in a tyre development test organized by Pirelli.

This test day aimed to finalize the construction of F1’s 2025 tyres, although wet conditions precluded running Pirelli’s scheduled slick tyre programme.

However, Pirelli made the most of the situation by evaluating new intermediate tyre constructions.

Among the drivers in action at the Northamptonshire track was Mick Schumacher, running with McLaren in its current-spec MCL38 as part of the Woking-based team’s agreement with Mercedes and its reserve drivers.

Schumacher, who tested for the very first time with McLaren in July 2023 at Portimao, completed 53 laps as the young German contributed valuable data to Pirelli’s analysis. Pietro Fittipaldi for Haas and Alex Albon for Williams were also in action at Silverstone as part of the Italian tyre supplier’s programme.

On Wednesday, all three drivers will cede their seat in their respective teams to Lando Norris, Ollie Bearman and Logan Sargeant.
