Prospective future Spyker racer Roldan Rodriguez on Wednesday tested a formula one car for the first time.

It was rumoured recently that the 22-year-old Spaniard, thought to carry as much as $15m in sponsor funds for a 2008 race drive, was a candidate for a seat with the Dutch team next year.

The GP2 driver on Wednesday completed a 50km shakedown at the wheel of the new B-spec car on the short Silverstone layout.

“Roldan performed well,” said team boss Colin Kolles.

“We were very impressed by his professional approach and attitude and the team really enjoyed working with him. He gave some excellent feedback that we will be able to integrate into our programme for the future.”
