Nov.8 - Like Toyota, Ferrari is also planning to conduct extensive winter testing in Bahrain in preparation for the 2009 season.

It emerged this week that Toyota has scheduled six days of testing in December at the scene of the annual Bahrain grand prix.

According to Gulf Daily news, Ferrari has also selected the desert venue at Sakhir for some F1 testing.

The local newspaper said Toyota will join the Italian team for six days of testing in February next year.

"We have a number of testing dates in December; Toyota are confirmed, but we still have interest from a lot of the other teams," circuit boss Martin Whitaker said.

"Whether or not (other teams) will come depends on where they are in terms of their development programme.

"Toyota and Ferrari will then come back in the beginning of next year," he confirmed.
