Allan McNish temporarily hands over the reins to fellow test driver for the French GP

Allan McNish, official test driver for the Mild Seven Renault F1 Team will be taking life slightly easier at the Magny-Cours Grand Prix whilst fellow test driver Franck Montagny takes the reins in a one-off opportunity to get out on track over the race weekend.

Allan has taken part in the two hour private testing prior to Friday qualifying every weekend so far, and will continue to do so following Magny-Cours.

Allan said: "The team has decided to give Franck the opportunity to take part in Friday testing, and the French race weekend seemed to be the best option. I'm testing at Nurburgring next weekend, and I'll be back in the car for testing prior to the British Grand Prix. I hope Franck enjoys the experience -- in this year's Renault he's bound to!"
