The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today finished this second day of testing at Paul Ricard.

This was also the final day of this week's testing: poor weather conditions forecast for tomorrow pushed the team to cancel tomorrow's running, in order to save testing days.

The day was spent working on Michelin tyre development ahead of Imola. Both drivers completed a large mileage, and found promising results.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"After seeing the poor weather forecasts for tomorrow, we decided to bring our programme forward, and cram in as much work as possible today in Paul Ricard."

"We focused on tyre development for Imola and completed the programme without incident. We have conducted two very productive test sessions since Bahrain, and are feeling optimistic as the fourth race of the season approaches."
