Kubica wraps it up for BMW Sauber
The last day of the BMW Sauber team's pre-season testing started with a delay of more than an hour due to heavy fog. When the sun had finally burnt through Robert Kubica did a race simulation that included start procedures and pit stops.

After the lunch break Kubica continued to evaluate different solutions for the BMW Sauber F1.09’s set-up in advance of the Australian Grand Prix. Today he covered 134 laps, bringing the car's total mileage for the four Barcelona test days to 2,162 kms. He was seventh fastest on the day.

"“Our final pre-season test was very productive," stated Technical Coordinator Willy Rampf. "We worked on the mechanical set-up of the car as well as the aero configuration. In addition, we also improved our KERS. Our second goal was to prepare for the season’s first Grand Prix in two weeks in Melbourne. We simulated a proper race day on Tuesday with Nick Heidfeld and today with Robert Kubica, each covering a complete race distance without any technical problems."

"That tells us a lot about the reliability of the BMW Sauber F1.09,"
he concluded.
