Button takes top spot in second day of Barcelona testing

The second day of testing at the Circuit de Catalunya saw Jenson Button set fastest time of the day, at 1:17.724, during a morning tyre test for Michelin. In the afternoon, he continued working on set-up, evaluating configurations which will be useful in the development of the 2003 car.

"We had a productive day overall in Barcelona," commented Mild Seven Renault F1 Team Technical Director Mike Gascoyne. "Jenson worked well this morning, concentrating on tyre choice for Silverstone, whereas the benefits of this afternoon's testing will be seen in the longer term."

Testing will continue tomorrow, Thursday, 27 June, with Jenson Button driving chassis R202-04.
