Team Sauber Petronas completed its three-day test at the Circuit de Catalunya today. Jacques Villeneuve made his debut for the team and covered 95 laps in chassis C23-02 to set a best time of 1:15.196s.
"My first day of testing with Sauber Petronas went really well. I had spent enough time in the factory for the seat fitting, so I felt immediately comfortable in the car. I did a lot of laps today and the times were good. In addition, the car ran absolutely reliable, we had no technical problems whatsoever."
"So it was really a very productive first day. We worked on the set-up mainly to further adapt the C23 to the Michelin tyres. We have a good basis and I am confident that we can continue this work in a positive way during our next test in Jerez."
