The Mild Seven Renault F1 Team today completed their two-day test at Monza in preparation for next week’s Italian Grand Prix, the day’s work focusing primarily on set-up work for the race, as well as tyre evaluation. In total, the cars completed over 1000km of running.Just like all teams suited with Michelin tyres, the main focus was on the new tyre specifications and some design changes to the car. Technical director Gascoyne is thrilled with the new rubber and has confirmed that they are actually performing better than their predecessor.“Thanks to our technical partners at Michelin, who have reacted incredibly quickly and effectively over the last few days, our tyre testing also went very well, and using the new shape tyre, we actually noted a small performance advantage over its predecessor”
