BMW Sauber technical director, Willy Rampf has said that they are 'well prepared' for this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix, the 14th round in the 2007 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

Speaking ahead of the event at Spa, Rampf added that though that the biggest concern is probably the weather, which could turn things into a bit of a lottery, just like the event at the Nurburgring back in July.

"The big question mark in Spa is always the weather that can change very quickly," he confirmed.

"We tested there in July with Robert [Kubica] and the weather conditions did exactly that. Our times there were quite competitive however.

"In the meantime, we have made further improvements to the BMW Sauber F1.07 so we are well prepared for this race."

Kubica meanwhile is looking forward to his first Formula 1 race at Spa and while he agrees that it is a top track, he also concurs that the weather could play a big role in the outcome of Sunday's grand prix.

"We had quite a good test there [back in July], but the weather, as always in Spa, will probably be unpredictable, so we have to see how things develop," he continued.

"After Monza, again we have a track where we have a lower downforce configuration on the cars, although not as low as in Monza, but it will be very good.

"It will be very nice to race in Spa in Formula 1 for the first time, although I have raced in Formula 3 and Formula Renault.

"Spa is a very nice track, very challenging, very quick and I think generally one of the favourite tracks of all the drivers," he concluded.
