Mark Webber to test for McLaren F1?

Hi all

Anyone out there know about Mark Webber testing an F1 car with McLaren? I
saw a brief part of the Australian RPM show which mentioned that Webber
would be testing for McLaren F1. Does anyone have any further details?

Alan Jones talked to Mark Webber by telephone during the TV coverage
before the start of the Spa race. Mark said that there was *no* test
with McLaren. He was *outside* the track at Silverstone to do some
interviews about his F3 career, and McLaren were testing there at the
same time. It looks like Auto Action saw him in approximately the same
location as a F1 test, put 2 and 2 together to make 5, and then mocked
up a photo to give some credibility to their wild speculation.
Journalistic integrity at it's very best!
