Lotus will run Davide Valsecchi, Edoardo Mortara and Nicolas Prost during the forthcoming Young Drivers’ Test at Abu Dhabi.
Nicolas Prost, son of four-times F1 champion Alain Prost, imitated his father by driving a Renault F1 car at Magny-Cours this weekend. Prost drove a 2009-spec Renault R29. The car carried the team’s 2010 colour scheme which harks back to the design used when his father drove for them in the early eighties.
A1 Grand Prix’s first race at the Kyalami circuit in South Africa was dominated by the Netherland’s Jeroen Bleekemolen. Bleekemolen started from pole position alongside Filipe Albuquerque. But the Portuguese driver was beaten to the first corner by Neel Jani, which allowed Bleekemolen to quickly extend his lead.
