Mild Seven Renault F1 today concluded a successful three-day test at the Barcelona circuit in Spain. With Jenson Button covering over 80 laps in the new R202, the team completed long runs during the morning and made good progress on setup of the car throughout the afternoon.

Evaluating the Barcelona test, Renault F1 UK Technical Director Mike Gascoyne commented:

"We completed our testing in Barcelona with another enjoyable day's work. Jenson ran a programme similar to Jarno's yesterday, and found the car both consistent and fast. Overall, we have had three very productive days, and are extremely pleased with our progress."

Mild Seven Renault F1 will conduct their final pre-season test next week at Silverstone. The team will run from Monday 18 February to Wednesday 20 February, shaking down the new R202 chassis prior to departure for Australia.
