Kobayashi makes debut for BMW Sauber

F1 Test, Valencia, Valencia, Ricardo Tormoes

On the second test day of the 2010 Formula One season, Kamui Kobayashi debuted at the wheel of the BMW Sauber C29 Ferrari. Once again the Valencia circuit in Cheste provided very good test conditions.

Kamui Kobayashi: “It was definitely a good day. We had no problems with the car and covered a lot of mileage. The car felt good. I enjoyed driving a lot and also working with the team. It was a difficult winter for everyone but they seem to have done a good job; I want to thank them for that. Now it is important to keep working hard for the remaining test opportunities.”

Willy Rampf, Technical Director: “It was another positive day of testing for us. First of all Kamui familiarised himself with the car and the track. We then continued with some basic set-up work and ran the car on different fuel levels. The latter is very important for us in order to be able to compare the results from the track with our results from track simulation. As yesterday, the car was reliable, which enabled us to complete our programme as scheduled.”

What comes next:
Tomorrow, Wednesday, will be the third and final day of testing in Valencia. Pedro de la Rosa will be taking over driving duties again.
