Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button have put the frustrating Jerez test behind them with a test run of Honda's UNI-CUB indoor scooter.

The pair completed just 79 laps in four days at the Spain circuit, though spirits in the team have remained high. Alonso and Button proved this is the case on Tuesday after McLaren posted a video of the pair fooling around on Honda's compact mobility device, which is manoeuvred by weight shift controls like a Segway.

Alonso starts the video "riding onboard" the UNI-CUB, looping around an office of Honda employees and back to Button, who then joins his new team-mate for another lap of the floor. Both men will hope Honda's new power unit has significantly more horsepower when it is turned up fully at next week's Barcelona test.
