Programme: It was another cold day in Barcelona with a dry start, but some rain at 10.00 meant about an hour of running was lost. Nick Heidfeld continued testing the new transmission. He also did long and short runs on the new Bridgestone tyres, and the team was happy with his day's work.

Robert Kubica had the same goal as Nick to work on the car's set up on the new tyres, and concentrated on this rather than testing new parts. Both cars practiced starts in the morning.

What comes next: Nick will now leave the test and his place will be taken for the third and final day by Timo Glock, having his first test with the BMW Sauber F1 Team. Robert will take over work on the new transmission while Timo will have what the team describe as a 'normal first day of testing'.

Nick Heidfeld:
Chassis / engine: BMW Sauber F1.06B-05 / BMW P86 V8
Test kilometres today: 333 km (72 laps)
Fastest lap: 1:17.159 min (on lap 70)

Robert Kubica:

Test kilometres today: 217 km (47 laps)
Fastest lap: 1:18.778 min (on lap 18)
