The Renault F1 Team completed a productive second day of testing in Jerez.

Circuit: Jerez de la Frontera
Length: 4.4 km

Driver: Robert Kubica
Chassis: R30 02

Total Laps: 103
Fastest Lap: 1:22.003

Summary of the day: Dry conditions allowed the team to complete good mileage, making use of the dry tyres saved from yesterday. The technical programme was focussed on set-up work and continued assessment of the narrower front Bridgestone tyres.

Robert Kubica: "We started the day with a damp track so we had to wait for conditions to improve before we started our main programme. We made good progress with the workload and did some set-up evaluation and tried to understand how the changes influenced the balance and behaviour of the car. We saw some nice results and learnt some interesting things so overall it was a good day."

Alan Permane, Chief Engineer: "Another very productive day as we completed over 100 laps and did a lot of set-up work with the car. We had made a lot of changes for Robert since the last test in Valencia and he's now much more comfortable and happier in the car. We steadily improved the balance and grip throughout the day and hopefully we can continue with this tomorrow if the rain holds off."
