The BMW Sauber team had a productive day of work at the Valencia circuit on Thursday as they continued with the first test with the new F1.08.
BMW were hindered by poor weather yesterday but, despite some gusty winds in the afternoon today, the team managed to complete the scheduled programme.
Nick Heidfeld was the man in charge of working with the new car, covering a total of 117 laps as the team began making changes in the mechanical and aero set-up to check the car's reactions.
Meanwhile, Marko Asmer drove last year's car for a total of 76 laps.
Heidfeld will continue to drive the new car in tomorrow's final session at Valencia, while teammate Robert Kubica will replace Asmer in the F1.07.
