Minardi to test at Mugello on Thursday

Minardi will test Nicholas Kiesa at Mugello this week, despite the fact that there is a testing ban in place at the moment. The teams which signed up for the Friday testing are not however bound by the non-testing pact although they had all agreed not to test to avoid problems. But Minardi now feels that the signing of a driver who is completely new to F1 means that it is essential that he is given some time in a car and the team hopes that the other teams will understand that the move is necessary and that it would be irresponsible not to do it.
