Programme: The BMW Sauber F1 Team experienced another trouble-free day of testing and enjoyed ideal track conditions in Spain. As both cars achieved very good mileage again, the team is happy with the work done and completed the scheduled test programme.

Both Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica spent the morning on set-up work. In the afternoon Nick did five long runs and Robert did three, each of them simulating slightly longer stints than Nick's.

What comes next: Tomorrow, which will be the final day of testing in the year 2006, Robert will be joined by Sebastian Vettel. As the team has almost completed its to-do list in terms of new parts and components, their task will be validation work for the test results achieved so far.
