The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today completed a successful three-day test at Silverstone with Oliver Gavin. In predominantly dry weather (with the only damp conditions coming early on Thursday morning), Gavin was able to complete an extensive programme of development work focusing predominantly on development items for 2003.

These included electronics systems development, damper development and suspension modifications. During Thursday's running, he also conducted a tyre evaluation programme for Suzuka on behalf of Michelin.

"Today concluded a useful three-day test at Silverstone with Oliver Gavin," commented Technical Director Mike Gascoyne. "In spite of several engine problems during the week, Olly did a very good job, driving consistently and collecting useful information for the last race of the season and beyond. We are very happy with the results and I think he thoroughly enjoyed his test!"
