With BMW-Sauber's pre-season test programme now ended, Robert Kubica has fended off suggestions he is a 2009 favourite.

Brawn has been clearly out front at the Barcelona test, but previously it was said the championship could be a closely-fought battle with contenders including Hinwil based BMW, Ferrari, Toyota and possibly others.

But told by Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport that he has been named a possible title dark horse, the Polish driver replied: "Well, I would not say (we are) the favourite.

"At this test everyone was trying to get some idea (of the pecking order) although you never know what the others are doing.

"But here at Barcelona there were cars that were stronger than us," the 24-year-old said.
