Programme:
The start of today's test session was delayed by nearly two hours due to poor visibility. Once the fog went away and the sun came out Robert Kubica worked on the set-up of the BMW Sauber F1.09. The team made good progress developing the new car, although just after the lunch break Kubica stopped out on the track due to a mechanical problem. He resumed testing after repairs had been made.

"It was the first time I was able to drive the new car in warm weather", Kubica said after completing 95 laps. "We learned a lot about the car's behaviour in these conditions, so overall it was a good day."

What comes next:
This week's testing in Bahrain will continue until Friday. Robert Kubica will be at the wheel of the BMW Sauber F1.09 again tomorrow and Thursday. On Friday Christian Klien will take over testing duties.
