Brendon Hartley is confident he did enough to qualify for a F1 super license when he tested at Jerez on Monday.

Brendon Hartley is confident he did enough to qualify for a F1 super license when he tested at Jerez on Monday.

The 19-year-old New Zealander made his proper F1 test debut at the wheel of a Red Bull at the Spanish circuit, completing a full 95 laps.

He told the New Zealand press agency NZPA that it is more than enough mileage to satisfy the F1 super license rules, allowing participation in official grand prix sessions.

"There were also people from FIA observing to make sure I am up to standard on the track," Hartley said.

"I'll find out sooner or later ... I didn't make any mistakes, so I think everything will work out."

BMW-Sauber and Williams were also in action at Jerez, while at Portugal's new Algarve circuit, McLaren and Ferrari began a three day test.

Felipe Massa did just 36 laps as he was not feeling well.
