Jarno Trulli and Franck Montagny were in action for Renault today at Silverstone with aero and tyre programmes on the menu. The pair completed over 900km between them - the equivalent to three Grand Prix race distances.
Both cars conducted initial set-up work before concentrating on testing a variety of new aerodynamic developments. They also conducted a number of programmes concentrating on the ride of the car. Both drivers tested new tyre compounds, and found interesting directions which will be pursued tomorrow.
Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer commented, "A productive first day for us here in Silverstone. The expected bad weather did not materialise, and we were able to complete our programmes with both cars. The aerodynamic work provided some interesting results for analysis and, in spite of several small niggles, the cars' reliability was faultless. The forecast is not promising for tomorrow either, but we hope for dry conditions in order to continue making progress."
