BMW-Sauber was tipped to officially join the 'anti-diffuser' club on Saturday.

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport claims the Hinwil based team, watched on in Malaysia this weekend by founder Peter Sauber, is set to formally protest against the controversial Brawn, Williams and Toyota cars.

Like Red Bull, Renault and Ferrari, BMW actually attempted to protest the double-diffuser cars in Australia, but fell foul of a technicality.

Given the stewards' ruling at Albert Park, the team knows this protest will also be thrown out, but it will allow BMW to fully take part in the forthcoming appeal hearing at the FIA Court of Appeal.

Timo Glock had good speed at Sepang on Saturday, and with Sebastian Vettel and Rubens Barrichello's grid penalties, the German moves his Toyota up to third on the grid for the Malaysian grand prix.

But he was way too fast in the pitlane in practice, caught by the FIA doing nearly 80kmh in the 60kmh zone. The infraction costs him 4000 euros.

Nick Heidfeld went 3.7kmh over the limit in the same practice session, attracting a 800 euro fine.
