Team Sauber Petronas completed a successful first test for the new C22 which has generated a great deal of data which will be processed in Hinwil in readiness for further tests at Valencia later in the month.

Willy Rampf (Technical Director):

"Our program with the new car today was with Heinz-Harald Frentzen to continue the aerodynamic validation that we started with Nick in the previous two days. This afternoon we also completed a tire test program on behalf of Bridgestone. Overall we are satisfied with the performance of the C22 in this first test and also with its on-going reliability.

Nick Heidfeld:

"It was interesting getting back in the C21 today for its last test with the Team. It confirmed all my deep-feelings about the improvements we have made with the C22."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"I was very excited to get my hands on the C22 for the first time today, after the way Nick spoke about it yesterday. I have to say he was right. The car feels more stable than the C21 and easier to drive. It's going to be good."
