A mammoth day's testing for the Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today in Monza, with the team completing 1600 km in a single day with two cars. Giancarlo Fisichella completed nearly three race distances, while Fernando Alonso was close to two and a half.

The heavy workload focused on tyre and brake testing, and was designed to protect the team against the forecasted threat of rain disrupting running tomorrow.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"We had a big programme to run today, and it required a disciplined approach to get everything done. The bulk of our work was on tyre testing -- compounds and constructions for both Monza and Spa."

"We also took time to conduct brake evaluation and tick this off our job list for the Grand Prix here in Monza, and also completed some set-up work for next weekend and the following race in Spa."

Fernando Alonso
Chassis: R25-03

Giancarlo Fisichella
