Final day of testing at Paul Ricard for the Renault F1 Team. Giancarlo Fisichella finished today the testing programme of the Renault F1 Team in the south of France.

At the wheel of the R26 04 chassis, the Italian was able to run his programme without any major problem and remained focused on tyre development with Michelin for the first European races. The team seemed to be very pleased by the data and the performance of Fisichella as he was all day long on top of the laptime table. He finally set the second fastest laptime in 1'04.327 and covered 160 laps today.

The Renault F1 Team will leave the Castellet tomorrow to reach Barcelona where he will continue his programme next week with his two race drivers at the wheel of the R26, Giancarlo Fisichella and Fernando Alonso.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"A very good day after two busy days here in Paul Ricard. We completed today our programme to prepare Imola and the tyre work was very encouraging. Giancarlo did a great job once again and seemed to be very satisfied with the car and its behaviour to set up changes and to the new envelops. We are going to Barcelona next week which promise to be a very busy session!"
