Limited running for Franck and Giancarlo at Jerez on a wet day in Spain.

The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team began a three day test session in Jerez this morning, but running was disrupted by poor track conditions, owing to intermittent rain, throughout the day.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"Although the rain meant we completed a more restricted programme than we would have done on a dry track, it nevertheless provided the opportunity to complete a large amount of useful software development."

"Also, Giancarlo had never driven on Michelin wet tyres before, so the conditions helped him in another aspect of his acclimatisation to our package."

Giancarlo Fisichella
