The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team completed its first week of testing with the R24 today in Barcelona. The car has completed over 1300km during the four days of running, and Fernando Alonso spent the day checking on-board systems and set-ups.

Franck Montagny completed his second day at the wheel of the R23, evaluating a range of tyre constructions and developing electronics for the R24.

Pat Symonds, Executive Director of Engineering:

"This week, we have demonstrated the inherent reliability of our package, and I think that it is quite an achievement to complete 1300km in the first week running a new car. Our work this week is a tribute to the quality of design and manufacture in both the engine and the chassis."
