Programme:
For the first time since 1993 the Formula One teams conducted an official test at the Hockenheimring. Unfortunately on the first of the three test days bad weather conditions with heavy winds and occasional rain made work very difficult for drivers and engineers. Rain showers caused short breaks in the morning as well as in the afternoon. Nevertheless Nick Heidfeld worked on a basic setup of the BMW Sauber F1.08 for the upcoming German Grand Prix. Today he concentrated on suspension related solutions.

What comes next:
The BMW Sauber F1 Team will continue testing in Hockenheim for another two days. Tomorrow Nick Heidfeld will be at the wheel again, work on the aerodynamical setup of the car plus tyre testing is on the schedule. On Thursday Robert Kubica will take over.
