The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today completed an encouraging second day of testing at the Valencia circuit, Spain. The team managed to accomplish the programme as planned with drivers Fernando Alonso and Allan McNish.

Fernando Alonso was able to run over 75 laps doing some performance work with the Michelin tyres. Allan McNish, who concluded his testing today, said: "On both days, I concentrated on reliability runs. I continued to accumulate mileage in the R23 and I'm very confident in the car's potential."

Carlos Nunes, Test Manager of the Mild Seven Renault F1 Team, said: "We are quite satisfied with today's running. In spite of engine problems which hampered his testing, Allan was able to continue his work on reliability for chassis and engine. Fernando completed his programme focusing on tyre work for Michelin in preparation for the first Grand Prix of the season. He completed a mixture of short and longer runs, trying at the same time different engine set-ups. Tomorrow, we will continue our testing with one car, which Fernando will drive in the morning."
