The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today began a five-day test programme in Valencia, Spain. Two days after his unfortunate retirement on lap 45 of the Austrian Grand Prix, a positive Jarno Trulli took the wheel of chassis R202-05 and completed 84 laps of the Spanish circuit during a day termed "productive" by Technical Director Mike Gascoyne.

Trulli completed a programme that included basic set-up work for the forthcoming race in Monaco and brake evaluation, as well as testing new suspension geometry during the afternoon.

"It was a good day," commented Mild Seven Renault F1 Team Technical Director Mike Gascoyne. "As usual, Jarno worked extremely well with a full development programme. Overall, it looks promising."

For the second day's testing at Valencia tomorrow, Wednesday, 15 May, Jarno Trulli will be joined by test driver Fernando Alonso. The latter will conduct electronic systems development, whereas the Italian will concentrate on a tyre programme with Michelin aimed at the next round of the championship.
