Valencia - BMW Sauber - Test day 1
The first scheduled proper test day with the new F1.08 driven by Robert Kubica in Valencia was hampered by adverse weather conditions as there were very strong winds in Valencia. Therefore it was impossible to gain any useful test results
The BMW Sauber squad concentrated on system checks on long runs with the new car with Kubica putting in 105 laps despite the conditions.Nick Heidfeld
was at the wheel of the F1.07 and carried out set-up work with the standard ECU and race start simulation and completed 74 laps.
Tomorrow Marko Asmer will be driving the F1.07B. It is the second time the young Estonian will get behind the wheel of the team's Formula One car.
Also tomorrow Heidfeld will have his first drive with the new BMW Sauber F1.08.
The team hopes for better weather conditions and productive set-up work with the new car to verify the wind tunnel data.
