Programme:

Three teams took part in the so called "Young Driver Day" in Jerez. For the BMW Sauber F1 Team Marko Asmer was at the wheel. He worked on the basic set-up of the car to improve his skills as a test driver. Driving 79 laps today, Asmer stayed just inside the "Young Driver Day" mileage limit of 350 kms. As parts of the Jerez circuit have been resurfaced recently, the team was also able to collect data on what are now different track conditions.

What comes next:

The BMW Sauber F1 Team will continue testing in Jerez for three more days. Tomorrow Christian Klien will be at the wheel of the BMW Sauber F1.08. On Thursday and Friday Robert Kubica will take over.
