Programme: Today, the drivers were running on the 5.255 km version of the track in preparation for the forthcoming races in Canada and the US. Due to wind and light rain in the afternoon, the conditions were not ideal.

Robert Kubica started the day defining a baseline set- up for a medium downforce configuration. He then tested different downforce options. Part of today's programme was the comparison of the two tyre compounds for the two forthcoming races. In addition, Robert made several practice starts. The team was able to complete the planned programme.

What comes next: Tomorrow, Nick Heidfeld will take over driving duties from Robert and will continue preparation for the medium downforce tracks.

Chassis / engine: BMW Sauber F1.07-05 / BMW P86/7 V8
