The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today began a two-day test session at the Paul Ricard circuit. The Team will run a single R23 with test driver Allan McNish.

Today Allan worked on a new air intake system and on the evaluation of two different engine specifications, one of which will be used at the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix (31 May-1 June).

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director:

"We had a very useful day's testing for what will be one of the most important race for us, the Monaco Grand Prix. We ran a substantially updated aerodynamic package, conducted some tyre evaluation and also worked on electronic systems. Tomorrow we will complete our programme with some long runs on one type of tyres which we think might be interesting for the upcoming race."

Allan McNish
