McLaren has been forced to cut short its third day of testing in Jerez due to a water cooling issue, ending its best day of pre-season so far.

After completing only a handful of laps on Sunday and Monday, McLaren finally got some mileage under its belt. Fernando Alonso completed 32 laps before lunch and at lunch tweeted: "Encouragaing morning here at the test! 32 laps. We keep learning about the car."

However, shortly after lunch McLaren confirmed it would not be returning to the circuit on Wednesday. Jenson Button will take over for the final day tomorrow.
