Team Sauber Petronas completed its second day of testing in Barcelona, at the Circuit de Catalunya today, with Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Nick Heidfeld. Nick Heidfeld, completed 50 laps and set the best time of 1m19.993s while Heinz-Harald Frentzen drove 53 laps and recorded a best time of 1m20.378s.

Jacky Eeckelaert (Head of Vehicle Engineering):

"Once again, we were a victim of the bad weather today. This time it was thick fog, which prevented us running this morning. It lifted by lunchtime however, so we were able to get on with our program this afternoon with both drivers. Heinz-Harald Frentzen continued work on the aerodynamics, and Nick Heidfeld completed the damper development program that he began yesterday."

Nick Heidfeld:

"I felt a lot better today after a good sleep last night. I was comfortable running in the car. Weather permitting, Team Sauber Petronas will be able to complete the program tomorrow."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"It's always frustrating to be at a race track and not be able to drive, but once the fog lifted we were able to carry on with our program. Once again, the car was reliable and we had another productive afternoon."

Sauber Petronas are very proud to celebrate today the success of the Austrian and Switzerland EURO 2008 bid supported officially by Credit Suisse and our Swiss Team during the 2002 season.
