Team Sauber Petronas started its three-day test at the Circuito Permanente de Jerez today. Nick Heidfeld conducted the first test day and covered 62 laps in chassis 05 to set a best time of 1:20.211. He will continue tomorrow before Heinz-Harald Frentzen will take over on Thursday.

Rémi Decorzent (Race Engineer):

"Our test this week will centre principally on mechanical components for the forthcoming 2004 C23, as well as some further aerodynamic development for Indianapolis and Suzuka. Today we have worked on the downforce level of Suzuka and the test went without problems. We also evaluated new suspension components which will be used this and next year. Tomorrow we will work with Bridgestone on the tyre compounds for Suzuka and run a downforce level test with regard to the US Grand Prix next week."

Nick Heidfeld
62 laps, 274.536 kilometres
