BMW still pushing 2007 car development

Despite it's 41-point lead over fourth-placed Renault in the constructors' championship, the BMW Sauber F1 team is still pushing the development of its 2007 car, according to technical director Willy Rampf.

"Quite obviously, our current car is subjected to ongoing improvement," Rampf revealed. "Despite our good championship position, we will have new developments for the forthcoming races. Monza is a low-downforce track while Spa requires medium downforce. At the same time, we also will have new components for the final rounds of the season." "Last year's race at Monza went surprisingly well for us," he added. "Therefore, we expect to again be rather competitive, there. And Spa is similar to Montreal or Indianapolis, when it comes to the downforce. At these venues, we have been successful in the past. Furthermore, Spa is a very challenging track for the drivers and this certainly will suit us well, too."
