Estoril testing fails to get off the ground

TESTING plans for three of Formula One's 11 teams were put on hold on Friday when running was forbidden on the Estoril circuit.

Low cloud and rain covered the track, and because the safety helicopter could not fly in the conditions, no cars were allowed out onto the track.

The teams - Benetton, Arrows, and Prost - will be hoping for better weather on Saturday, when they will continue the test.
