Swiss Mercedes-Benz DTM driver Marcel Fassler had his first run in a Formula 1 car at Silverstone on 18th September when he tested for West McLaren Mercedes. However his run was limited to a single installation lapas the weather conditions were too tricky for the rookie to show what he could do.

Marcel said: "I am a little bit disappointed, but it is down to the weather that I feel like that. I can understand why the team didn't want me to run in these conditions. You cannot show too much when it is like this and if you try too hard to make an impression then you can break the car.' <pre> - Marcel Fassler Team : Warsteiner AMG Mercedes (Mercedes-Benz CLK) Born: May 26, 1976 Place of Birth: Einsiedeln (Switzerland) Status: Single Lives: Einsiedeln (Switzerland) Race career: 1985 - 1995 Kart Racing: Victory in ICA European Championship 1993 Winfield Racing Driver School: 3rd Place 1995 Formula Renault "Campus" Championship: 3rd Place 1996 French Formula Renault Championship: 3rd Place, and Rookie of the Year 1997 French Formula 3 Championship: 11th Place 1998 French Formula 3 Championship: 4th Place 1999 Deutsche Formula 3 Championship with the Bemani Team: 2nd Place/4 Wins 2000 DTM with Team Warsteiner AMG Mercedes: 4th Place 2001 DTM with Team Warsteiner AMG Mercedes
