      yep a few times. he’s said its unlikely for him to ever race in F1, but the tests are just for fun.

  2. A few times I think.

    I’d love to see him in F1, I would get on his bandwagon anyway.

    He did several.
    Once in Valencia he tested among many other drivers, and was quite fast. At that time there seemed to be a chance for him to drive in F1, but then there wasn’t any follow up.
    I think he’s a great personality, could attract lots of interest and sponsors. But a top team cannot exchange all of that with a driver that could be constantly one second off…

    • God I hope there are no more compulsory pit stops, other than the tyre rule.

      Whats the point !!!!!!!!!!
      If they bring it in then there goes any and all strategy…every one will have to make x pit stops…

      I am sick of this this!!!
      MAKE SOME RULE AND DAM WELL STICK TO THEM!
