The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today finished testing at the Silverstone circuit. The team had planned to run for two days, but due to weather conditions on Wednesday the drivers were unable to run.

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director:

"Both drivers had a very busy test programme today, which concentrated mainly on tyre development work with Michelin. Fernando evaluated the tyres for the French and British Grand Prix, then focussed on chassis set-up of the R23 in the afternoon."

"Jarno worked on aerodynamics and general car set-up, together with a tyre test in preparation for the forthcoming race in Canada. Overall it was a productive test with the drivers putting in a good deal of mileage."
