Cochet to race in Macau
Cochet was passed over by Alain Prost when Luciano Burti was injured at Spa, Prost deciding to take on Tomas Enge instead thanks to sponsorship which the Czech driver had available to him.
Cochet has a good record to date, having won the 2000 French Formula 3 Championship and the Marlboro Masters F3 race - the ultimate test for young European drivers at that level. Adding Macau to his record would be a big boost.
