Although the test session - designated as a private filming day - was held behind closed doors, Honda published these snapshots of its return to F1 on its Twitter account.

Due to the Sporting Regulations, the car, listed by the team as a MP4-29H, could not cover more than 100km today.

The car is expected to run again the upcoming Abu Dhabi test at the end of the month.
