BMW motorsport boss Gerhard Berger is reserving his predictions for this weekend's race at the Nurburgring but is taking confidence from his Williams team's recent performances.
Ralf Schumacher scored his second victory of the season for the team at the last race in Canada, but Berger is cautious of making over-positive predictions in the run-in to what is Schumacher's home race.
"After a victory it is natural to head to the next Grand Prix full of confidence," said Berger. "Even though the track layout of the Nurburgring doesn't suit us as well as Montreal a forecast is difficult especially as the teams have not tested at the track.
"However, what makes me pretty optimistic for the next races is the way the team improved its performance step-by-step during the Montreal weekend."
