What comes next: Continuation of engine and systems testing.

Jacques Villeneuve:

"We had a minor technical problem today, but this is something normal with an interim car. We don't expect the car to be very fast, but our long-runs were quite good and we are happy with that."

"The engine ran well today, too. We - the Sauber crew and the people from BMW - were also still about getting used to each other. However, overall we were making some progress today."
