Renault in Moscow

The Renault F1 team sent a car to Moscow at the weekend and drivers Fernando Alonso and Giancarlo Fisichella made demonstration runs on a street track laid out on Moskvoretskaya street and across the Moskvoretsky bridge. The track was close to St Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin. Thousands of Russsians lined the streets to watch which meant that the drivers had to keep speeds low. The demonstration was linked to the launch of a new brand image for Mild Seven cigarettes in Russia.
