Team Sauber Petronas completed its exclusive two-day test at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza today. Nick Heidfeld covered 81 laps in chassis 05 to set a best time of 1:23.373.

Rémi Decorzent (Race Engineer):

"Over the last two days we were able to conduct our test programme as scheduled - thanks to good weather and track conditions. We basically focused on the Bridgestone tyres and have done a lot of aerodynamic tests. The new aerodynamic parts needed further checks and we believe that we have found some directions to make them work efficiently under race conditions."

"Our programme also comprised the set-up for three downforce levels as they will be required in Imola, Montreal and Monza. Those tests give us a lot of valuable data which should enable us to prepare ourselves to the optimum, although the results of our work will only be evident at the races. Overall we are happy with what we could achieve those days and look forward to Imola next week."
