Jerez de la Frontera, 10th February 2010 - The BMW Sauber F1 Team today started its second test of the season in Spain. The venue is the circuit in Jerez, which is faster and more demanding than the Valencia track.

"Sadly the weather conditions were not as we would have liked. Because of this we had to skip some mechanical and aero testing. Most of the time Kamui was running on intermediates. We did some set-up work, system checks and start practice."
