Programme: The morning was cold with the team opting not to send Robert Kubica out at the beginning of the day, hoping for warmer temperatures as his main focus was tyres . This was the first time the team had tested the new Bridgestone tyres, so an important part of this test is to work on adjusting the set-up of the car to these.

Nick Heidfeld was working on a new transmission and was the first of the two drivers to go out on the track in the morning. Robert was testing new parts for the 2007 car.

What comes next: Tomorrow Nick and Robert will be testing again. Nick will continue with the transmission testing and also work on brakes. The work of adjusting to the Bridgestone tyres will also continue on both cars, while Robert will also work on mechanical components for the 2007 car.
