Johnson's day at McLaren


Jimmie Johnson has arrived in London and is “seeing the sights” ahead of his ride swap with Fernando Alonso in Bahrain on Nov. 26.

The seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and two-time Formula 1 champion will take to Bahrain International Circuit the day after the F1 season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. On Wednesday, Johnson visited the McLaren Technology Centre, where he got an in-depth look at the Formula 1 facility before spending time in the racing simulator and being fitted for his seat.

Johnson gets down to business as well, getting his seat fitted…

…and suit ready…

…and his helmet.

As for the No.48 Chevy Alonso will drive, Hendrick Motorsports documented its journey from the U.S. to Bahrain.
