Juan Pablo?s fastest recorded lap of the three day session was a 1:19.966s.

"From BMW's point of view, this week's test was a successful one. We covered an impressive amount of mileage and completed the programme as scheduled. Now we can concentrate on the race at Indianapolis, where we hope to be able to demonstrate the improvements we've made this week."
