Fernando Alonso today completed the first of four days of testing in Valencia, Spain for the Mild Seven Renault F1 Team.

Driving chassis R202-04, Alonso concentrated on basic set-up work during the morning. Following an engine change at lunchtime, the afternoon consisted of tyre development work for Michelin, concentrating on the evaluation of new constructions.

"A normal first day of testing," commented Technical Director Mike Gascoyne. "Fernando ran some useful programmes for our tyre partner Michelin."

Tomorrow, Wednesday 10 July, Alonso will continue testing in Valencia. In addition to a development programme aimed at next year's car, he will run the new bodywork first seen last weekend at Silverstone, putting mileage on the new parts before the forthcoming French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours.
