The Mild Seven Benetton Renault Sport team has today completed a good day testing with Jenson Button and Mark Webber behind the wheel. The number of laps and the reliability significantly shows the improvement the team is making to the complete package.

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director

Jenson continued testing in the B201 in what was a similar specification to the engine we used in France last weekend. For tomorrow and Friday his engine specification will be comparable to the one we used for qualifying session at Magny Cours. Jenson had a productive day testing different suspension settings and also at the end of the day we tested the launch control that we hope weTll be able to use at the Silverstone Grand Prix.

Mark Webber continued his tyre testing programme in the B200 and completed 74 laps. <pre> Driver Car Best time No. of laps
