Team Sauber Petronas continued testing Valencia (Spain) today with two of the new C22 driven by both Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen . Nick Heidfeld in chassis 01 covered 50 laps with a best time of 1m.11.418s. Heinz-Harald Frentzen in chassis 02 covered 43 laps with a second best time of 1m.11.109s

Jacky Eeckelaert (Head of Vehicle Engineering):

"Our plan today was to run both cars with the optimized mechanical and aerodynamic set-ups arrived at yesterday by Nick and Heinz-Harald respectively. The weather conditions were very suitable this morning. Unfortunately, we lost track time when both cars suffered a transmission problem before lunchtime, which we analyzed before sending out the cars again. Both drivers were able to resume their programs in the afternoon."

Nick Heidfeld:

"I am overall satisfied with my fifth quickest time and with the changes we have done to the car set-up today. "

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"I felt the car was handling well and responded as expected to the work we have done today with the Team and the second quickest time is the best proof."


Nick Heidfeld
50 Laps, 200.250 kms
