Programme:
The BMW Sauber F1 Team started the day with a race simulation. Nick Heidfeld completed a full race distance without any technical problems. To give the mechanics some valuable pre- season pit lane testing, the team practiced several pit stops and even simulated a stop-and- go penalty.

After that the team concentrated on the set-up of the BMW Sauber F1.09 and tried different aero solutions. At the end of the session Heidfeld did a couple of practice starts on the circuit's main straight.

Nick Heidfeld said: "The race simulation was an important and valuable part of the final preparations for the Australian Grand Prix, which is in less than three weeks. It was the last test for me, I'm now looking forward to the season opener in Melbourne."

What comes next:
Tomorrow Robert Kubica will take over at the wheel of the BMW Sauber F1.09. He will be on duty on Wednesday and Thursday.
