A teenage Malaysian this week has become the youngest ever driver to test a Formula One car.

Nabil Jeffri, 16, conducted straightline aerodynamic duties for the Malaysian-owned Lotus team at the Imperial War Museum runway at Duxford (UK).

"I have to admit that the first time I went out it was pretty scary!" he said.

Also in action in a straight line this week is Ferrari's Giancarlo Fisichella, at Vairano, and Adrian Sutil at Silverstone in a Force India.

Meanwhile, several F1 drivers - Jenson Button, Lucas di Grassi, Bruno Senna and Alex Wurz - will share participation in the TriStar 111 triathlon in Monaco this weekend.
