Programme: The changing weather conditions hampered the team's programme as it did not allow for proper comparisons. Originally, set-up scanning and aerodynamic development were on the list.

The team had to be flexible and swapped to a tyre and electronical systems evaluation programme. In the end a hydraulic leak caused a fire on Robert Kubica's car, though it did not do much damage to the car.

What comes next: Due to the bad weather conditions in Valencia, the BMW Sauber F1 Team has extended the test by one day to Friday. Tomorrow, Thursday, race drivers Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica will continue testing.
