The Renault F1 Team completed its final day of work in Jerez with Robert Kubica behind the wheel of the R30.
Circuit: Jerez de la Frontera
Length: 4.4 km
Driver: Robert Kubica
Total Laps: 117 laps
Fastest Lap: 1:19.114
Summary of the day: Dry and sunny conditions allowed the team to make good progress with its technical programme. After evaluation of fuel loads in the morning, attention switched to long runs in the afternoon along with set-up work. Robert completed 117 laps and set the second quickest time of the day.
Robert Kubica: "It was a good day and we tried a lot of different things, which has given us lots of useful information. To begin with we did some evaluation with different fuel loads to check the balance of the car and then in the afternoon we did long runs with heavy fuel to simulate a race distance. We completed most of the programme and I was pretty happy with the car."
Alan Permane, Chief Engineer: "Another solid day of work as we made the most of the good weather. We ran the car with varying fuel loads this morning to see how it reacted and we were pleased with the results. Then we attempted a race simulation and, although it was interrupted, we still managed to cover the required number of laps. Later in the afternoon we concentrated on some set-up work and found a good direction with the car."
