Mild Seven Renault F1 today continued testing at Valencia in Spain, with Jenson Button in the new R202 and test driver Fernando Alonso at the wheel of last year's B201. Owing to difficult weather conditions, the team concentrated on long-distance reliability running, with both drivers completing their programmes without any problems.

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director of Renault F1 UK, commented:

"It was an encouraging day for the team. Jenson completed over 50 laps in the new car, concentrating on reliability runs, while Fernando once again conducted tyre development for Michelin."

Testing continues tomorrow for Mild Seven Renault F1. Jarno Trulli will return to action in the B201 to ensure he is fully fit following Monday's illness, while Jenson will undertake a full race simulation in the new R202.
