|11 March: Jerez Testing, Day 2|
Franck Montagny, R25-05, 92 laps
Heikki Kovalainen, R24-08, 85 laps
The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today concluded testing at Jerez in southern Spain.
The circuit was wet during the morning following overnight rain, and the team therefore conducted limited running. However, Kovalainen did run Michelin’s latest wet tyre, a product he had not tested so far.
The sun broke through around lunchtime, which saw the circuit dry quickly and the team make good progress with its tyre development programmes, focusing principally on Bahrain and longer-term development. Montagny primarily conducted performance runs, while Kovalainen concentrated on endurance runs.
