Programme: In the morning the track was still wet, and that's why the team started the programme later than scheduled.

Nick evaluated Michelin tyre options for Bahrain, but in the afternoon experienced a technical problem, which forced him to return to the pits and cost him some time. He was able to continue, but the team still need to analyse the data to identify the exact reason.

Robert drove the new car for the first time and used the morning to get used to it. Later he ran cooling system checks and worked with Michelin on a Sepang tyre validation.

What comes next: The BMW Sauber F1 Team will be testing again from February 14 to 16 in Barcelona.
