Sauber satisfied with Jerez tests

1 Mins read

The BMW Sauber team announced themselves 'quite satisfied' with this week's testing session, despite the awkward weather conditions around the Jerez circuit that have plagued the four-day test.

After a damp start, the track was dry by midday, and the team could complete a full afternoon of testing, with Pedro de la Rosa on testing duties.

The wet weather conditions meant that intermediate tyres were needed on the C29-01 to complete a 20-lap run this morning. Once the track was sufficiently dry the team could continue with their testing programme, working on mechanical set-up, tyre comparison, and finishing with aero tests.

The team's Head of Track Engineering , Giampaolo Dall'Ara gave a positive summary of this first Jerez test. “Because of the difficult weather situation this week in Jerez we are a little below expectations in terms of mileage but we still managed to cover all our topics and had no major technical problems.”

BMW Sauber will be at the next Jerez test, which begins on 17th February. Pedro de la Rosa will be in the car on the first two days, whilst Kamui Kobayashi drives for the final two.
