The Mild Seven Benetton Renault Sport team began a three-day test at Silverstone on Wednesday.

Whilst the majority of the race team stayed out in Asia after the Australian Grand Prix to travel onto Malaysia for the second round of the 2001 FIA Formula One World Championship, Mark Webber kicked off their season testing programme back in the UK.

The track was wet at the beginning of the session but dried out during the morning and the team worked on software development and tyre testing with a focus on preparation for the Malaysian Grand Prix on March 18th.

Testing continues until Friday.
