VALENCIA - Poland's Robert Kubica gave BMW-Sauber's new Formula One car its track debut yesterday as his team limbered up for a first serious assault on the championship.

Team boss Mario Theissen said the team had drawn up a four-year plan when they started out in 2006 and had met every target so far with points in the first season, a podium in 2007 and first race win last year.

"We stated that we wanted to fight for the championship from this year onwards," the German told reporters after the car's rollout on a bright and crisp morning at Valencia's Ricardo Tormo circuit. - Reuters
