BMW are not favourites – Heidfeld

BMW driver Nick Heidfeld has played down claims that he and teammate Robert Kubica are outside bets to win the 2007 F1 title. The BMW’s speed has impressed in testing so far, although is not the most reliable so far. Massa and Berger have both insisted they believe that BMW could be a match for Ferrari and McLaren.

However Heidfeld insisted, “What people say changes nothing for us. We must concentrate on our work and not be distracted. Just because a few people think we look in testing does not make us the favoutie. At the moment, I see Ferrari right at the front.”
