Mario Theissen BMW-Sauber Motorsport DirectorBMW’s Motorsport Director Mario Theissen, has stated that while BMW Sauber has successfully reached McLaren-Mercedes in terms of performance, the team has still to close the gap with Scuderia Ferrari in order to be able to win the first Formula 1 race. “In terms of car performance Ferrari has an edge,” said the German. “In the past two races we were equal to McLaren-Mercedes, but the gap to Ferrari, it is a bit difficult to find out how big it is because I am not sure if Ferrari were going full pace in the races.”

“The gap is certainly smaller than it used to be. It is coming down, so Ferrari need a strong day to win the race. But if anything goes wrong we can be there, and I hope we will be there,” he added.
