Japanese GP practice reactions: BMW Sauber F1

Robert Kubica - 15th:

“It is really good to be back in Suzuka. The track is amazing to drive on. Unfortunately the weather conditions were far from ideal today as we could not run at all in the dry. In the morning we did a couple of laps on full wet and also intermediate tyres just to check the balance of the car. The weather conditions during the afternoon session were even worse than in the morning, as there was really lots of water on the track. Preparing for tomorrow will be a bit of a guessing game, as the weather forecast predicts dry conditions for tomorrow.”

Nick Heidfeld - 16th:

“Certainly there wasn't much to learn today. I feel sorry for the many Japanese fans who stayed out in the grandstands despite the nasty weather but didn't get much to watch.”

Willy Rampf - head of engineering (BMW Sauber F1):

“This was not a usual Friday. The ongoing rain throughout the whole day forced us to do a minimum programme. With this we only got a set-up for wet conditions. More was not possible today. The next two days should stay dry.”
