Benetton Wrap Up Four-Day Test at Danielson

Friday May 18th, 2001

The Benetton team wrapped up on Thursday a four-day testing session at Danielson in France, where Briton Olivier Gavin worked with the B201 carrying out aerodynamic tests.

The Renault-owned team, struggling this season having scored only one point in the first six races, decided not to join the massive Valencia test, where eight of the eleven teams are testing, and instead travelled to France to test some new aerodynamic components for the upcoming Monaco and Canadian Grands Prix.

"As well as collaborating the current version of the aerodynamics evaluation, we have been looking at solutions for both high downforce circuits like Monaco and the lower downforce range in preparation for Canada," said the team's technical director Mike Gascoyne.

"This is the first time this year we have had a chance to do this work and we are very satisfied with the results, working through a large programme of aerodynamic configuration. The test was very successful and promising for the future."
