18 February: Barcelona Testing, Day 4
Fernando Alonso, R25-02, 100 laps, 463 km
Giancarlo Fisichella, R25-03, 132 laps, 611 km

The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today completed the final day of its penultimate winter test at the Circuit de Catalunya.

The team’s programme included race distance runs for both drivers, tyre selection for the opening races and set-up development. Most encouragingly, the team completed the highest mileage of the winter so far with the R25, and continued to set encouraging times on both long and short runs.

Chief Test Engineer Christian Silk commented:

“Today was the best day’s running of our winter test programme. Both drivers completed race distances with the car, and performance on the long stints continued to be extremely encouraging; indeed, the lap-times were backed up with excellent feedback from both Fernando and Giancarlo. The mechanics also deserve recognition for their work this week: we extended our running by a day at short notice, and not only did they adapt fantastically well to ready the cars, but they continued working flat out until our final runs of the day. They have done an excellent job this week and throughout the winter. We have had a very positive test, and the elements are falling into place for Melbourne; we will sign off the final items during our running next week at Silverstone.”

The team will test for three days at Silverstone next week, from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 February. Franck Montagny will make his first runs in the R25 on all three days, while Fernando Alonso and Giancarlo Fisichella will be present on Tuesday for pit-stop practice with the race team.
