Although Sauber drivers Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen haven't been testing since the Australian Grand Prix, they are still keeping themselves busy before the next race. Traveling to a health and fitness centre in Malaysia after Melbourne, the pair spent time with trainer Josef Leberer and will now start a busy round of personal appearances from this weekend.

Tomorrow they will visit Alor Setar, the capital of the state of Kedah, one of the oldest states in Malaysia, and will join the students of the "MRSM-PDRM" school to demonstrate Formula One with a show of driving and pitstops

On Sunday, Heidfeld and Frentzen will take a tour of the Petronas fertilizer plant and drive tractors through paddy fields -- something of a departure from and F1 car -- before visiting the place where Malaysia's Prime Minister Dato Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad was born on Monday.

Come Tuesday, the drivers will visit students at the SMK Sri Bintang school before an autograph signing session at the Suria KLCC centre, and launching the new Petronas Motorsports fanclub at Planet Hollywood. On Wednesday they will visit the famous Petronas Twin Towers for the launch of a new Petronas product and later will be presented with their official cars by Proton at Proton Edar Showroom in Jalan Ampang.

That just leaves time on Thursday for the Sauber drivers and Team Principal Peter Sauber to attend the opening of the Petronas Motorsports Technical Centre in Bangi. Friday it's back to the day job for the opening day of the Malaysian Grand Prix with free practice.
