Programme: For Timo Glock it was his first day in the F1.06. He used the first laps to familiarise himself with the car and then began working on the set-up. He completed 100 laps without any problems and the team was happy with his work.

Robert Kubic concentrated on tyre testing as well as running a new gearbox. Due to a hydraulic problem he lost some time in the morning, but continued in the afternoon with several long and short runs.

Overall, it was a productive three day test that enabled the team to gather a lot information particularly on the new tyres. The engineers were very pleased with the support they got from Bridgestone.

Timo Glock:

"The characteristics of an F1 car is quite different from a GP2, so it took me some laps in the morning to adapt my driving style. It's a fantastic feeling to drive this car. Particularly in the fast corners the speed is really impressive. I did many laps today and was able to improve constantly, so I'm really happy, and I'm looking forward to my next test in Jerez."

What comes next: The next test of the BMW Sauber F1 Team will take place in Jerez from December 6 to 8.
