Programme:
Running interim cars - 2008 chassis and engine configuration with some body work complying with the 2009 regulations - the BMW Sauber F1 Team today continued its development work in preparation for next season. After sitting out the chilly early morning, when temperatures of around five degrees Celsius made any meaningful testing impossible, Robert Kubica and Christian Klien worked on the mechanical set-up of the F1.08B. Both drivers also did tyre evaluations for the different compounds of the 2009 slicks.

"I could do a lot of laps today and covered nearly 600 kms, which was very good. Our main goal at this stage is to understand what we can do with the set-up options for next year's car," said Kubica.

What comes next:
There is only a short break over the weekend before the BMW Sauber F1 Team starts testing again in Jerez. Another three days session is scheduled to begin on Monday.
