Programme: Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld continued to work on the general set-up of the BMW Sauber F1.08 following the test schedule as planned. Completing 116 and 109 laps respectively without any major problem both drivers collected valuable data progressing the development of the car. Both drivers did several practice starts and pitstops to check the car's systems under these special conditions. Today's test again was hampered by strong winds, which affected the lap times significantly and made aero work difficult. Due to the wind the team even interrupted scheduled long runs during the afternoon.

What comes next: BMW Sauber F1 Team will conclude the Jerez test tomorrow. The programme includes more development work on the aerodynamical and mechanical set-up.
