Katherine goes well

Katherine Legge gave a very decent account of herself yesterday at Vallelunga, making up for her unfortunate incident on Tuesday. Legge did 27 laps and set a sensible lap time, prompting departing team boss Paul Stoddart to remark that "she's definitely got what it takes to be a Formula 1 driver."

Legge said she was pleased with the test and is now keen to have another try. Her next appointment is in America, however, where she is due to test a Champ Car. It is anticipated that the 25-year-old will race in the Atlantic series in 2006 and may move up to Champ Cars after that. The F1 test was organised thanks to her team boss Kevin Kalkhoven, who owns Minardi engine supplier Cosworth.
