Minardi to launch car at Victoria Parliament
EUROPEAN MINARDI will officially launch their 2001 challenger on the steps of Victoria Parliament's House in Melbourne on Wednesday, it has been revealed.
The 2001 car, named the PS01 after new team owner Paul Stoddart, will be unveiled at 10.45am along with drivers Fernando Alonso and Tarso Marques.
