Some Mark Webber News

Mark Webber has been called up at short notice (Mark flew out of
Australia  Saturday) to do another test for Arrows.  He is due to test
in Silverstone this week, according to the Australian newspaper today.

Does this mean the odds of Tom Coronel or Jos the Boss getting the
second Arrows seat, vacated by Tora going to Japanese Formula Nippon,
are lengthening?  

Mark was only half a second of Pedro de la Rosa in a December test and
Paul Stoddart European Aviation F3000 etc. has indicated he would help
Mark sponsorship wise saying he would if neccesary match the Aussie
sponsorship $ for $. This was in the context of Mark needing
$3,000,000 Australian to get into F1, (this is roughly $1.3 million US
or $1.2 million Pounds) it wasn't specified what this was for,
probably the cost of the Arrows test driver spot.

Apologies for a brain fade with the currency conversion $1.95 million
US is the correct conversion.
