Tuero tests for Minardi
MINARDI last week tested nineteen-year-old Argentine driver Esteban Tuero at Mugello.
It was Tuero's first run in a Grand Prix car, despite the fact that Minardi signed a testing deal with him in December 1995 - when he was only 17 years old.
Minardi says that he intends to continue his policy of employing young drivers and it is possible that Tuero might join TarsoÊMarques next year. In recent seasons Minardi had helped to bring on both Giancarlo Fisichella and Jarno Trulli and has done very well by selling their contracts on to bigger teams.
