The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team's second day of testing at Silverstone began with a covering of snow on the British circuit. However, conditions improved through the morning and by early afternoon, the team was able to complete very limited running prior to further snow showers later in the afternoon.

Consequently, Fernando Alonso and Giancarlo Fisichella were able to conduct limited pit-stop practice work with the race team, while Franck Montagny shook down a brand new R25 chassis prior to its departure for Melbourne.

Christian Silk, Chief Testing Engineer:

"We continued preparations for the winter Olympics during the morning at Silverstone, although the progressive improvement in conditions somewhat hampered our programme."

"However, on a more positive note, this did enable us to shake down the latest chassis for Melbourne, and to complete "live" pit-stop practice with the drivers and race team during the early part of the afternoon."

"Our test will conclude tomorrow: hopefully, we will see some better weather and warmer temperatures to enable Franck to do some useful running."
