MF1 Racing is pleased to confirm that Markus Winkelhock will be the team's third driver at the opening round of the 2006 FIA Formula One World Championship at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir. The 25-year-old German, who finished third in the Formula Renault World Series last season, demonstrated his considerable abilities while testing for the team during the winter.

Giorgio Mondini will take over testing and reserve duties at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. The Swiss driver, also 25, was the Formula Renault V6 Champion in 2004 and has shown similarly impressive potential in an F1 car during recent testing.

"We are fortunate to have two such promising young drivers testing for us," commented MF1 Racing Managing Director Colin Kolles. "They are both very talented and capable of providing useful feedback. I'm sure they will help us develop the car to its maximum potential in preparation for the opening races."
