Willy Rampf, Technical Director Chassis:

"Overall, the test in Barcelona was very positive for our team. The reliability of the BMW Sauber F1.06 is already on a good level, which enabled us to complete over 1500 kilometres with the new car during the four days. We could collect a lot of data and learned more about the set-up of the F1.06."

"In addition, I am very satisfied with the debut of Robert in our team. Over two days, he didn't make the smallest error, and he was able to improve constantly. On top of that he is also able to give valuable feedback to the engineers."
