Asmer to get a proper run for Williams

The BMW Williams F1 team is to give Estonian racer Marko Asmer his first proper F1 test in Barcelona this week. The 18-year-old is currently racing in British Formula Ford for Richard Dean's Team JLR. He was previously a factory driver with the Tony Kart Team. This is his first year racing cars but thanks to the fact that he is being managed by Harald Huysman, who helped develop the career of Jenson Button, he has already tested for Williams at the Vairano center in Italy, doing straightline aerodynamic runs and getting himself into the feel of running an F1 car.
