The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team completed a busy opening day of testing at Monza in preparation for next week's Grand Prix, completing nearly 200 laps with the two cars. Fernando and Giancarlo ran without incident as they worked on set-up and tyre selection programmes.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"We had a very good day's testing, with some encouraging results and excellent reliability. It is always difficult coming to Monza on the first day, as the drivers need some time to adapt to the low downforce configurations and the circuit is often quite dirty."

"However, Fernando and Giancarlo both settled in quickly and we were able to complete plenty of set-up work before beginning our evaluation of tyre compounds and constructions for the race weekend."

Fernando Alonso
Chassis: R25-03

Giancarlo Fisichella
Chassis: R25-05
93 laps, 1:21.318
