--------------------------------------------------------- Ralf Schumacher into German Army( 13 august, F1-InterMag) --------------------------------------------------------- Ralf Schumacher has to join the German Army in November 1997. After a physical test on which he scored 2 he was allowed into the army. Michael his brother scored 5 on that same test and not has to go into the German army. The German army is flexible and will let Ralf join all test sessions and Grand Prix's. All this means that Ralf is in very good physical condition. --------------------------------------------------------- Prost team posts fastest-ever lap( 13 august, AFP) --------------------------------------------------------- Italian Formula One driver Jarno Trulli clocked the fastest lap ever recorded at the Mugello circuit Wednesday at the wheel of his Prost Grand Prix car. Trulli clocked a best lap time of 1min 25.120sec while testing at the Tuscany circuit, averaging 221.828 km/h. He beat the previous best mark of 1:25.252 set by Michael Schumacher's Ferrari in a private practice session on April 3. Though a boost for team morale, Trulli's time like Schumacher's could not be recorded as an official lap record since they can only be clocked during races or official qualifying sessions. The Prost team are joined for this week's practice sessions by Sauber drivers Johnny Herbert, who finished third in Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix, and Gianni Morbidelli.
