The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today completed its Silverstone pre-GP test with a programme centred around further tyre testing and set-up development.

The day was interrupted by several showers during the afternoon, while Fernando Alonso was also delayed by mechanical problems this morning, but the team nevertheless completed high mileage to get firm directions on tyre choice for the race.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"We completed another solid day's running, although some problems meant we did not complete as many laps as we hoped to. However, both drivers obtained good information on the tyres, and we continue the set-up work begun yesterday."

"Some rain showers passed through this afternoon, and we made the most of them to conduct some tyre development on wet and full wet compounds. In spite of not running on Wednesday, this has been a productive week and we are in good shape for the Grand Prix here in several weeks' time."

Chassis: R25-05
85 laps
Best time: 1:19.123

Fernando Alonso

Best time: 1:19.727
