Barcelona Test
Circuit de Catalunya, Monday, January 22, 2002
Weather: Dry
Temperature: Track 17; Air 14
Distance: 54 laps, 256 kms

Team Sauber Petronas today continued its three-day test with the new Sauber Petronas C21 in Barcelona. Nick Heidfeld was once again at the wheel and his fastest time of the day of 1m 19.290s, during the course of 54 laps. Felipe Massa arrived in Spain today, ready to take over the driving duties tomorrow when he will experience the C21 for the first time.

Willy Rampf (Technical director): "Once again our programme embraced aerodynamic measurement and evaluation, and systems checks of the C21 and we were able to do more laps in a shorter time than yesterday. We also carried out a programme of tyre testing in conjunction with Bridgestone. "Both programmes were satisfactorily concluded by two o'clock, so we took the rest of the afternoon to check over the C21 and to prepare it in readiness for Felipe's first run tomorrow."

Nick Heidfeld: "Once again I enjoyed my stint at the wheel of the C21, and it continued to give me positive feelings. I can tell that it is improvement on the C20 even at this early stage, and that it is going to be good car."
