Renault's 2006 car - the R26 broke cover this morning as testing resumed at a chilly Jerez circuit in southern Spain. The car featured the usual livery but main differences can be seen in the sidepods and some sharper looking aerodynamic fixtures.
This is the first time Renault has also tested its new V8 engine on track - its testing before Christmas was compelted with a limited V10 engine in the back of last year's championship-winning car.
Giancarlo Fisichella is completing the first shakedown test laps of the new car. More details and photos to follow throughout the day.
