Alesi's three days in the spotlight

WITH McLaren's regular drivers still in Asia, testing was left to Jean Alesi, the F1 veteran doing tire development work for three days at the Circuit Paul Ricard at Le Castellet. In the course of the testing Alesi completed 800 miles of running, equivalent to four Grand Prix distances. Alesi was running in an interim MP4/16B.

Alesi enjoyed working with the team but there are no plans for him to do any more running and he will now concentrate on his Mercedes-Benz racing program in the German Touring Car Championship.
