NEWS STORY
18/01/2008

Ahead of next weeks test, when all the major teams will test at Valencia, today (Friday), BMW concluded its private test at the Spanish track.

In the morning the team lost some time due to a mechanical problem with the power steering on Nick Heidfeld's car. However, later on he continued with set-up work on the F1.08 and was able to cover 91 laps. In the F1.07, Robert Kubica completed 42 laps.

Technical Director Willy Rampf summed up his impressions of the first test: "Apart from this morning we had no noteworthy reliability problems during the four days. We were able to complete many laps with the new car and managed to collect a lot of valuable data. We have a base line for determining the programme for next week’s test. We are only just starting out and have a fair amount of work to do to find the ideal settings for the new car."

The team resumes testing here next Tuesday.
