Sauber spend test session in the pits

1 Mins read

BMW Sauber chose to complete just eight laps on Day 2 of the Jerez test.

With changeable weather for the second day running the team decided they could not collect any useful data with further running on a damp track.

The barely utilised Pedro de la Rosa hopes for better conditions at the next test. “With the same mixed conditions as yesterday, it simply wasn't worth doing much driving today. We have a good understanding of the car, and I'm looking forward to the next test in Barcelona, hopefully on a dry track.”

Test engineer Thomas Hunsicker is hopeful that the team will be able to resume their testing programme tomorrow when Kamui Kobayashi will be behind the wheel. “We gathered a lot of data yesterday in mixed conditions, which is why it didn't make sense today to complete a lot of laps just for the sake of running the car. The weather forecast is better for tomorrow. That will give us the opportunity to continue working on our scheduled programme.”
