F3000 men get their chance

NEWLY crowned FIA Formula 3000 champion Justin Wilson and his Coca-Cola backed team mate Tomas Enge are to test for Jordan and Prost respectively this week.

Enge is due to test with Prost at Magny-Cours, putting his name on the shortlist of those who may step in for Luciano Burti should he be unfit to compete in Italy and Prost is extremely keen on establishing a relationship with the young Czech's sponsor, Coca-Cola.

Wilson meanwhile will appear with Jordan at Mugello, leading to speculation that the 6ft 3in Englishman - the first Briton to claim the F3000 title in its 16 year history - may yet join the team for 2002 in place of Jeans Alesi, as the team's sponsor Benson & Hedges is known to want a British driver on board.
