As the morning was wet, the BMW Sauber F1 team did not start its work until the afternoon. It is quite a time since any members of this team have been at the circuit so it was important to do preparation work for the British Grand Prix on the 11th June.

Jacques Villeneuve completed set-up and aero work, while Robert Kubica did set-up work and tyre comparisons.

What comes next: Tomorrow Jacques will continue testing and will concentrate on tyres and aero work. It will be Nick Heidfeld’s first day, taking over from Robert, and he will do some set-up work to catch up with what the team has been doing today and then also work on tyres.
