The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team concluded testing in Jerez on a positive note this afternoon, with both race drivers conducting complete programmes and demonstrating the competitiveness of the new R25.

Fernando and Giancarlo spent the morning conducting set-up work, although Giancarlo's programme was interrupted by red flags on track. Subsequently, both drivers concentrated on long runs of up to twenty laps in order to evaluate tyre performance under endurance conditions.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"We have learned a lot from our running this week, and it was pleasing to complete a full day's work with both drivers today. There is still a lot of work to do before the first race in Melbourne, and we have two busy tests ahead of us."

"However, we have confirmed the car's strong performance from Valencia here in Jerez, on a more typical circuit, and we hope to see these results corroborated next week at Barcelona, an active Grand Prix venue. Certainly, our results so far lead us to believe that we are in very good shape for the first race of the year."
