Programme: Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld concluded the three days test in Jerez with development work of the new BMW Sauber F1.08. Contrary to the last two days, when the sessions were affected by strong winds, the weather today allowed numerous longruns which helped the team to evaluate different aerodynamical set-ups. Both drivers also executed practice starts and pitstops.

Over the three days period Kubica and Heidfeld completed a total of 336 and 319 laps (1488 and 1413 km) respectively. The team collected valuable data which enabled the engineers to improve the balance of the BMW Sauber F1.08. With four weeks to go before the season opening Australian Grand Prix the team will conduct further test sessions to capitalize on the full potential of the all new car.

What comes next: Next stop on BMW Sauber F1 Team's test schedule is Valencia, where from February 19th to 21st the development work on the F1.08 car will continue. Robert Kubica, Nick Heidfeld and new test driver Christian Klien are scheduled to attend.
