The Renault F1 Team returned to Jerez today to start its second week of testing at the Spanish circuit.

Circuit: Jerez de la Frontera
Length: 4.4 km

Driver: Vitaly Petrov
Chassis: R3002

Total Laps: 55 laps
Fastest Lap: 1:26.237

Summary of the day: A day of mixed weather in Jerez saw the circuit affected by several heavy rain showers during the day. At times the track dried out allowing the team to complete a mix of wet and dry running.

Vitaly Petrov: "Another wet day in Jerez. The track conditions were constantly changing from wet to dry, which made it difficult to learn very much. We have to hope that tomorrow is better so that we can get a lot of laps on the car."

Alan Permane, Chief Engineer: "It was a very frustrating day, especially for Vitaly who has had very little dry running so far. The frequent showers meant that the track was wet for most of the day and we couldn't achieve a great deal of constructive work"

Jerez Test Schedule 18-20 February:
Thursday 18 February: Vitaly Petrov
Friday 19 February: Robert Kubica
Saturday 20 February: Robert Kubica
