BMW Sauber F1Following two successful Grand Prix in Australia and Malaysia, the BMW Sauber F1 Team is getting ready for the next race weekend: the Bahrain Grand Prix. Mario Theissen, BMW Motorsport Director, hopes that the team’s successful run will continue.

After a successful start to the new season, Formula 1 has earned a two week break. However, the World Championship races in Melbourne and Sepang have given people a thirst for more. On 6th April, at Sakhir’s International Circuit in Bahrain, the Formula One circus moves into the next round.

“I’m hoping that we can continue our successful run and qualify for the first two or three rows on the grid,” said Mario Theissen, looking ahead to the race in the desert emirate. “If we manage that, then there is always a good chance of finishing in a podium position.”

With two podium finishes and holding second place in the Constructors’ Championship, the BMW Sauber F1 Team can be truly satisfied with its excellent season start. Compared to the winter tests, the F1.08 single-seater has improved dramatically and has significantly reduced the gap to the top two teams, Ferrari and McLaren. No tests are on the program me before the Bahrain Grand Prix, but the development goes on. “There will not be many new components in Bahrain. We will take a big step in Barcelona. However, there will be a few small modifications for Bahrain,” said Theissen.
