Theissen praises entire team: 'Mission Accomplished'
BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen has expressed his sheer delight following the BMW Sauber F1 Team's maiden win that was secured by the Hinwil based squad’s Polish driver, Robert Kubica, at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit in Montreal on Sunday. Speaking to the team’s official website, Theissen revealed how he is thrilled that the team’s goal of securing their maiden victory was achieved, however he knows that there is still a lot of work to do before they are regular visitors to the top step of the rostrum.

“The 8th June 2008 will remain be a special date in the, still short, history of the BMW Sauber F1 Team. After all, it was our only 42nd race, but in the Canadian GP held on this day we succeeded in celebrating our maiden win, nevertheless. The fact that it turned out to be a one-two turned this day into a truly memorable one. We have accomplished the next step on our agenda.

Robert first, Nick runner-up - a truly fantastic result. Even the day after this success, finding the appropriate words proves to be difficult. I'd like to congratulate not only Robert and Nick, who both did a fantastic job in difficult conditions, but most notably the entire team in Munich and Hinwil. I know that everybody shared the thrill at home, in front of their TV sets.

We set ourselves the goal to close the gap to the front-runners this season and secure our maiden Grand Prix win. With seven races of the season contested we now can say: 'Mission accomplished.'

Throughout the season to date, we have no longer been the third power on the grid but one of the three top teams. And the fact that Robert has taken the lead in the Drivers' Championship represents the icing on the cake.

However, we must remain realistic. With eleven more races to go, this is just a 'snap-shot' and nothing else. We will continue focusing on each forthcoming race at a time aiming to add further points to our tally." AutoMoto365
