Jaguar deny Franchitti test
JAGUAR have dismissed suggestions that Champcar driver Dario Franchitti is set to test with the Milton Keynes-based team this week.
Jaguar have been linked with the Scot, who finished second in last year's championship behind Williams-linked Juan Pablo Montoya, as they are believed to be looking for a replacement driver for Johnny Herbert.
"Dario is not testing with us this weekend and we do not intend to in the imminent future either," said a spokesperson for the team.
Jaguar, however, refused to confirm whether they had been in contact with the driver.
