Berger confirms new BMW engine tests
The first new engine was not due to be tested until December but BMW engineers in Munich were able to produce a prototype earlier than expected and the results have been extremely positive. Our sources say that BMW was being very careful with the new engine and keeping revs down throughout the test.
However, there is much optimism at BMW that the new unit will give Williams the boost to compete with McLaren and Ferrari next year.
