MADRID - Spanish Formula One driver Fernando Alonso put his new R-28 car to the test Monday in dense fog at the Cheste track in Valencia as he prepares for a racing season in which he will once again be behind the wheel of a Renault, following a turbulent year with McLaren.
Alonso completed a single lap of the circuit two hours later than scheduled because of reduced visibility. Renault are hoping that the combination of two-times world champion Alonso and the new car, which sports an unusual front wing and lower front-end profile, will put them on track for another victory this season.
