Mario Theissen, BMW’s head manager, is very confident that the team will, in the upcoming season, win the first grand prix of its short history. BMW-Sauber pilots Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica are also convinced that they will win at least one race in 2008.
Thiessen's objective could indeed be met as the BMW engine is powerful enough to challenge the best engines of the plateau. The team’s mass engine production will allow BMW to offer engines as early as this season to any team wanting to buy.
The car will keep its original white and blue colors and will retain the same sponsorship.
The team still must announce the identity of their third driver as nobody has been hired during the off-season.
