17 February: Barcelona Testing, Day 3
Fernando Alonso, R25-02, 105 laps, 486 km
Giancarlo Fisichella, R25-03, 122 laps, 564 km

The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team completed an encouraging third day of testing at Barcelona today.

The main priorities for the day were to complete race distances with both cars, prior to conducting tyre development work for Melbourne. Fernando and Giancarlo both completed race distances before lunchtime and subsequently conducted performance runs on the range of tyre compounds available for the first race. The team also completed some set-up development.

Chief Test Engineer Christian Silk commented:

“We had a very good day today, with both cars running pretty much trouble-free. The drivers both successfully completed race distances, completing very long runs and giving positive feedback about the performance over these long runs. In terms of lap-time, the car looked very consistent and competitive during these longer stints. The afternoon was dedicated to tyre development for Melbourne, and our short performance runs provided some interesting avenues that we will pursue tomorrow over longer distances. Most reassuringly, we completed over 100 laps with both cars, and although there is still much to do before Melbourne, we are now making good progress in our preparations.”
