Mild Seven Renault F1 today completed another successful day's testing at Barcelona, Spain. Both drivers were in action during the day, with Jenson Button conducting development of the new R202 while Jarno Trulli continued his familiarisation with the team, working on setups and tyre development for Michelin in last year's car.

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director of Renault F1 UK, commented: "Another productive day for the team. Unfortunately, an engine leak meant Jenson lost the morning whilst the unit was changed, but he ran in the afternoon, completing over 30 laps and making good progress with the setup of the car. Jarno continued his programme in the B201, making further improvements on his setup and carrying out important work for Michelin."

Mild Seven Renault F1 will continue testing tomorrow, with Jenson Button completing his testing in the R202. Jarno Trulli will conduct another tyre development programme for Michelin, and will have his first test of the new R202 on Thursday, 31 January.
