F.I.A. F.3000 German Grand Prix is one of the most expected events for Coloni Motorsport, especially this year: Coloni in fact can proudly announce that Zsolt Baumgartner will carry out the Friday morning test with the prestigious JordanF1 team. Zsolt has been chosen by Jordan as test driver (for the Hungarian GP too) and the Hungarian of Coloni Motorsport will have a main role in the choice of the right set up in sight of the qualifying and race. Baumgartner completed yet a 50 km shakedown on Monday July 28th at Silverstone and he will get for sure good outcomes on a well-known track like the German one.

Coloni Motorsport is very pleased that one of his drivers has been chosen by a Formula 1 team as a test-driver, enlarging the number of drivers launched in the best autosport series by the Italian team.

Ricardo Sperafico looks forward to the "friendly" Hockenheim race: in Germany Ricardo had obtained in 2001 his first pole position in F.3000 and one of his first podiums, while in 2002 the Brazilian took a good sixth place and above all he scored the fastest lap in race. Thanks to the proved competitiveness of Coloni's single-seater, Sperafico will get certainly a good result.

On Friday morning the free practice and then the qualifying; Saturday the race will start at 16,00.

Zsolt Baumgartner: "I'm very happy! I hope I will able to do a good job with the JordanF1, for me it's a very big chance to show and prove my qualities in the Formula 1 world. I'm also very confident about the F.I.A. Formula 3000 International race: I know the circuit, in 2002 too I got a good outcome. Above all I want to do a good qualifying and to start in the front rows. I'm sure I will finish in the points, also thanks to Coloni single-seater's qualities: it's important for me to get a good result here".

Ricardo Sperafico: "Hockenheim is one of my favourite tracks. Here I got my first pole position in F.3000 and one of my first podiums. I'm very confident for the race, given that I achieved always good results and in 2002 Coloni dominated the GP at the debut of the new track".
