HONDA RACING F1 TEAM TO LOAN KLIEN FOR SPYKER TEST

The Honda Racing F1 Team will allow its Reserve and Test Driver Christian Klien to take part in a one-day test with the Spyker Formula One Team in Spa this week.

Whilst Honda's first priority is its 2007 development programme, it has always placed great emphasis on supporting its young drivers. As the current testing regulations have restricted Christian's mileage this year, Honda wishes to allow Christian as many opportunities as possible to develop his abilities.

Christian will test with Spyker on Thursday, the final day of Spyker's three-day test programme.

Gil de Ferran, Sporting Director of the Honda Racing F1 Team, commented: "Christian has had limited time in the car this year as a result of the testing regulations. This test with Spyker could lead to him returning to a race seat and those opportunities do not come along often."

"As we have demonstrated on previous occasions, Honda will do whatever is possible to help our young drivers to further their careers and keep moving forward."
