Mild Seven Renault F1 today completed a successful day's work at the Valencia circuit in Spain. With Jenson Button continuing at the wheel of the new R202 and Jarno Trulli resuming testing in last year's B201, the team completed over 100 laps in spite of windy conditions which again made setup work difficult.

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director of Renault F1 UK, commented: "In spite of the bad weather, Jenson had an extremely productive morning, except for a minor gearbox problem which curtailed his running in the afternoon. Overall, he was very pleased with the balance and handling of the car.

"Jarno ran in the B201, making progress in learning about the Michelin tyres as he conducted further development work."

Tomorrow (Thursday 7 February, 2002), Mild Seven Renault F1 will conclude their test at Valencia, with Jarno Trulli taking the wheel of the R202 while test driver Fernando Alonso continues tyre development work in the B201.
