VALENCIA TEST 30 April - 3 May 2002

Summary: The BMW WilliamsF1 Team concluded a four day test at the Valencia circuit in Spain today ahead of the forthcoming Austrian Grand Prix. The test was conducted by Juan Pablo Montoya, and test team driver Antonio Pizzonia.

The weather conditions were generally good but with an exceptional downpour on Thursday afternoon, the test team worked through an extensive programme that focused on tyre work with Michelin, engine mapping and brake testing.

The BMW WilliamsF1 Team also ran a second car for aero testing in Danielson.

Sam Michael (Chief Operations Engineer WilliamsF1):

"At the Valencia test we concentrated on tyre testing and various mechanical and aero components for upcoming races such as Monaco. We also had some time to spend on wet and intermediate set-ups due to occasional bad weather."

Mario Theissen (BMW Motorsport Director):

"For us it was a valuable and detailed four-day test. We learnt much regarding the onward development of our BMW engine, but the main focus of the test was chassis and tyre work."
