Barcelona:

The final Formula One testing session before the start of the season has been extended by an extra day.

Catalunya Circuit organizers say the fourth preseason test will be run from March 8-12 and not end on the 11th as originally announced.

The Barcelona circuit is hosting the 11 F1 teams after the scheduled testing session from March 3-6 in Bahrain was canceled due to anti-government protests that have left several people dead.

The season will start with the Australian Grand Prix on March 27 after the Bahrain GP on March 13 was canceled.

Bahrain organizers are hoping to reschedule the race until later this year.
