The Mild Seven Benetton Renault Sport team continued testing at Silverstone on Wednesday, as they prepared for the United States Grand Prix.

Jenson Button and Mark Webber were both on hand to drive for the team, but wet weather interrupted the testing schedule.

Mike Gascoyne, Technical Director
"Another disrupted day's running due to the weather and unfortunately we were not able to complete our test programme. In the morning, Jenson ran a new exhaust system which looks promising, then his test programme was disrupted by an engine change at lunchtime. Meanwhile, Mark conducted some development testing for next year's electronic systems."
