Keen to reinforce their true race potential which has only been glimpsed so far this season with a podium in Australia, the BMW WilliamsF1 Team completed a productive four day test at the Circuit de Catalunya today. The distinct and measurable progress made has bolstered the team's confidence in the run-up to the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos next weekend, where it is hoped that the team will give a positive reflection of their competitiveness.

Sam Michael (Chief Operations Engineer, WilliamsF1):

"A four day test has come to a close during which the team had all three drivers on hand. We tested many aero, mechanical, engine and tyre components and made significant progress. Most of these parts we will be taking to the next GP in Brazil."

"Juan and Ralf shared the aero and mechanical test items while Marc spent four days testing tyres and engine developments during a race simulation. It was a good test from a reliability point of view and we covered a lot of miles."

Mario Theissen (BMW Motorsport Director):

"From the BMW perspective the Barcelona test was a successful one. Apart from supporting tyre testing and the development programme for the FW25 chassis, we have tested further improvements on the engine with regards to Sao Paulo and completed a race simulation without any problems."
