Programme: It was a positive day for the team. The conditions were very good, and Nick Heidfeld was able to cover 620 kilometres. He started the day working on the set-up to suit his driving style. A major part of his programme was the comparison of the two tyre compounds that will be used for the next two races. In addition, Nick practiced some starts and evaluated different aerodynamic configurations.

Overall, the BMW Sauber F1 Team enjoyed a successful four day test and was happy with the reliability of the car. The new development parts revealed promising results. The team was able to collect a lot of data and feels well prepared for the forthcoming Grands Prix.

What comes next: The BMW Sauber F1 Team will be testing again from June 19 to 21 in Silverstone.
