Test programme / Remarks:
A productive final day of testing with Jacques Villeneuve running the best lap time of the day. The Sauber C24B with the BMW P86 V8 engine worked well and without problems all day long. The engineers concentrated on a tyre test programme for Michelin and gathered more data on the BMW P86 V8. The engine ran flawlessly, and reached its mileage around noon and therefore needed to be changed. The crew continued testing later in the afternoon.
What comes next: Test in Jerez from December 13 to 15.
