A fleeting Mexican

There were reports last week that Mexico's Mario Dominguez was going to pop up testing for Jordan. These stories were initially denied by the team but then Dominguez turned up on Friday and did one single installation lap on Friday before the test was cut short because of the foggy conditions. Dominguez then flew off back to the United States. Our spies south of the border say that the Midland team had serious talks with Dominguez about a deal in 2005 but that he decided to stay in Champ Cars for the coming season because his team is dependent on the sponsorship he brings and pulling out would do the team serious damage. Dominguez may end up as a Jordan test driver on occasion in 2005 and is thought likely to be a strong challenger for a seat in 2006.
