Lundgaard was the first driver to take to the track last Thursday, the Dane putting 101 laps under his belt. Piastri’s run followed the next day while Zhou’s test was spread over Sunday and Monday.

Renault Sport Academy Director Mia Sharizman praised all three drivers for the performance and feedback they delivered over the course of the four-day test.

“It was good to see Christian and Guanyu manage to complete their respective programmes, which was geared more towards preparing them for their remaining Formula 2 rounds in Bahrain later in the month,” Sharizman said.

“For both drivers to be able to do more than 100 laps per day, shows a step forward and upwards progression from their last year F1 Test in the R.S.17.

“I am impressed with Oscar’s approach for his first day in the F1 car. He managed to get up to speed pretty quickly and complete his run plan.

“We can see from his first day in the car that he is capable of adapting to a new car quite easily, which is one of the biggest traits that we would like to see.

“We had good feedback from the F1 engineers of the performance from all three drivers and they can see that the level is getting higher and higher each year, which is a good sign for things to come.”
