Team Sauber Petroans started its four-day test at the Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo today. New signing Neel Jani conducted the first test day and covered 60 laps in chassis 05 to set a best time of 1:16.40.

Rémi Decorzent (Race Engineer):

"It was the first real Formula One test today for Neel Jani after the straight-line test in Vairano at the end of April and for this he performed very well. Despite he went off track in lap 46 we were still able to complete our programme for today. Of course, we never expected him to be as fast as others but it was also an investment for us into the future."

"After he got further familiarised with the car in the morning we started to test different aerodynamic configurations for the Monaco race. We now have some data to make comparisons. Neel has also done a bit of system testing. Tomorrow Nick Heidfeld will take over and conducts tyre tests too."
