Nick Heidfeld conducted development work with the BMW Sauber F1.08 going through various aerodynamic comparisons and suspension settings. Although he encountered some minor technical problems, it was a productive day. As opposed to last week, the weather conditions were very good and enabled the engineers to gather a lot of valuable data. Marko Asmer drove the F1.07B. He had a limited programme mainly concentrating on systems checking and development work with the SECU.
What comes next:
Tomorrow, Robert Kubica will drive the F1.08 while Nick Heidfeld will be at the wheel of the F1.07B.
