The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team spent a busy day testing in Jerez today.

Both drivers completed incident-free race weekend simulations using the B specification RS25 engine, which will be used by both race drivers in the forthcoming Grand Prix at Barcelona. The chassis programme concentrated primarily on tyre evaluations, for both the next race and beyond.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"We had initially planned to run at Silverstone this week, but poor weather forecasts in England meant we changed plans in order to run in more stable conditions. That means we need to complete three days' work in two -- which in turn led to an extremely busy day for the test team here in Jerez."

"However, both drivers succeeded in completing race weekend distances without any technical problems, and we collected some promising results from our tyre evaluation work."
