Programme: Today the team enjoyed the good weather conditions that made for a dry track. Nick Heidfeld had a good day, covering numerous laps and doing set-up work as well as a comparison between tyre compounds. In the afternoon he completed several longer runs for tyre evaluation.
The team was happy with his test results, whereas Robert Kubica achieved much less mileage due to technical problems. Robert had started the day with set-up work and got some positive results to build on, but was then stopped by the aforementioned problems.
What comes next: Tomorrow, Friday, Robert will run Chassis F1.07-02 and will be joined by Sebastian Vettel, who will be driving Chassis 01 for the final day of testing in Valencia. After the bad weather earlier this week, the team wants to catch up and complete its programme for set-up work, systems and aerodynamics.
