RUSSIAN DRIVER ROMAN RUSINOV PREPARES FOR HIS FIRST TEST WITH MF1 RACING

MF1 Racing Midland's F1 Team is pleased to announce that Roman Rusinov will participate in his first Formula One test session with the team at the Jerez circuit in Spain on the 10 of December, 2005. In preparation for the test, the 24-year-old driver attended the team's Silverstone headquarters yesterday for a seat fitting.

Colin Kolles - Managing Director of MF1 Racing stated: "MF1 Racing will compete in the 2006 FIA Formula One World Championship under the Russian flag, so it makes perfect sense for our team to test a Russian Driver and we are looking forward to working with him at Jerez."

Roman Rusinov added: "It would not be an exaggeration to say that I have been waiting my entire career for this moment! This test is the first but crucial step on my way to F1. At this point, my aim is to learn the peculiarities of an F1 car and familiarise myself with the way an F1 team works. My arrival in F1 depends on numerous factors, but the most important thing for me right now is to concentrate on driving the car quickly and properly.

"I believe I have shown this ability throughout my career and I am positive that I will perform well this time. I would like to express my gratitude to MF1 Racing, Midland Group and personally to the team's founder, Alex Shnaider, for allowing me this opportunity."
