Team Sauber Petronas concluded the third day of its winter development program in Jerez with Heinz-Harald Frentzen. The program was focused on aerodynamics and system checks as well as validation of the data that Nick gathered in the previous days. Heinz-Harald Frentzen covered 79 laps and set a best time of 1m20.012s.

The Team will conclude the last test of the season and of its winter development program with both Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen from December 11 to December 13 in Barcelona (Spain).

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Head of Test Team):

"One of our programs today focused on validating all the data we gathered earlier in the week with Nick. However we also carried out some further aerodynamics assessment and Heinz-Harald Frentzen also did some work on the engine, braking and traction control systems. Overall it has been another productive and positive test for us, which again will be beneficial for the final design of the C22.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"I very much enjoyed all the test work that we did today. I feel that we accomplished a great deal in a short time. I am already familiar with the car from racing in Indianapolis, but this was an opportunity to learn even more about its systems. I now am feeling very comfortable within the Team. "
