Minardi to run Toccacelo

Enrico Toccacelo is to become the Minardi test and reserve driver from the Turkish Grand Prix. There are rumours that Toccacelo will go to America next year but the move to Minardi would seem to suggest that he wants to lay the foundations for an F1 career at the end of this season.

"We are very pleased to have Enrico join us as official Friday test driver," said Paul Stoddart. "He has a strong track record and this will be an excellent way for him to begin to get to grips with Formula 1."
