Programme: The weather conditions today enabled the team to test all types of tyres. In the morning, both drivers used extreme weather tyres and made some system checks. They then switched to wet weather tyres, making comparisons between new and used ones, and with the track drying up they were finally able to use grooved tyres.

While Nick Heidfeld worked on the set-up in the afternoon, Timo Glock, who did only his second day of testing with the team, worked on a damper programme. Both drivers used the new gearbox. They had a trouble- free day and were able to complete more than 100 laps each. The team made significant progress and has learned a lot about the new tyres.

What comes next: The BMW Sauber F1 Team will be testing again from December 13 to 15 in Jerez.
