Premat gets Spyker in China

Frenchman Alexandre Premat will be the Spyker MF1 third driver for the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. Premat will test for the team at Silverstone tomorrow.

"This is a great opportunity to try an F1 car," he said. "I've been waiting for this day since I first started racing as a young boy. I've worked so hard for this opportunity and am determined to show my full potential at Shanghai and show I have earned it."
