The Renault F1 Team continued work at Jerez today, pursuing tyre and set-up evaluation programmes with Franck Montagny and Heikki Kovalainen. A wet circuit early in the day prevented any useful running, but as conditions improved the team ran problem-free to complete a total of 241 laps.

Franck Montagny conducted set-up work, followed by tyre compound development with Michelin; conversely, Heikki Kovalainen completed a programme of tyre construction evaluation, prior to a set-up programme focusing on 2006.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"We had another very productive day, once again completing a high mileage with both drivers. The poor conditions in the morning meant we had to push hard to get today's work done, but the team and both drivers delivered. The car continues to look competitive in simulated V8 configuration, and we made good progress with our tyre development."

Tomorrow, Fernando Alonso will join Franck Montagny in testing at Jerez.
