Today the Mild Seven Renault F1 Team concluded its two-day testing at the Paul Ricard circuit, France. Jarno Trulli and Allan McNish completed the test programme in preparation for the forthcoming Austrian Grand Prix.

Allan McNish worked on developing the suspension in last season's car, the R202. While Jarno Trulli ran successfully 76 laps, with a best lap time of 1:12.780.

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director:

"Again another productive day of testing. Jarno continued to run the new-spec engine in the R23. He also concentrated on long runs to assess the tyres with Michelin for the Zeltweg circuit. Allan completed his scheduled day's work in the R202 covering suspension work and a tyre programme. Overall, the two days we had a satisfactorily result and we now look forward to the race in Austria."
