Programme:

Christian Klien worked on the mechanical set-up of the BMW Sauber F1.08. He also tested various aerodynamic settings in readiness for the remaining races of the 2008 season. After completing 84 laps (372 kms) Klien said: "A whole day's testing without any problems gave me the opportunity to provide the engineers with a lot of feedback on new components. The new surface on parts of the track provides better grip, and has smoothed out the bumps that were there before."

What comes next:

Originally Robert Kubica was scheduled to take over test duties from tomorrow. However, due to an infected tooth he has had to cancel his trip to Jerez at short notice. Therefore Nick Heidfeld is scheduled to take over testing duties in the BMW Sauber F1.08 for the remaining two days of the test.
