Renault F1 Team remained in Barcelona on Friday to complete the second of three days testing at the Circuit de Catalunya. The team again benefited from ideal weather conditions with a cloudy morning developing into a warm and sunny afternoon.
The team was therefore able to make good progress with its busy development programme. Nelson Piquet was back behind the wheel of the R28 and spent the day completing aero and chassis development work in preparation for next week's French Grand Prix. The young Brazilian completed 129 laps, and was glad to have a relatively trouble-free day.
"It was a good day's work and, despite losing some time before lunch, I was able to do most of what we had planned," said Piquet. "We spent the day evaluating some new things that the team will use in France next week and that all went well. Another full day of running on Saturday should put us in good shape for next week."
Christian Silk, chief test engineer added, "We had a busy programme with a lot to get through, but the whole team worked hard and we were able to complete what we needed to. We now have lots of valuable information, which we will analyse this so that we can make the most of the final day."
