On his first day at the Barcelona test Robert Kubica concentrated on several different race- related situations to fine tune the working relationship between him and his pit crew. He also worked on solutions for the set-up of the BMW Sauber F1.09 on the mechanical and aero side of the car. As well as this, he tested different tyre options and, before the lunch break and after the end of the afternoon session, did a couple of practice starts.
"Today was very productive", Kubica said after covering 508 kms. "We tried various solutions we weren't able to complete last week in Jerez because of the unfortunate weather conditions. Obviously our main target today was to do a lot of evaluations for the forthcoming Australian Grand Prix."
What comes next: Tomorrow will see the last day of the BMW Sauber F1 Team's pre-season testing. Robert Kubica will again be at the wheel of the BMW Sauber F1.09.
