I wonder where is Webber? i am sure he was 2nd test driver at Benneton/Renault


I'm pretty sure that picture is from 2002, when Webber was driving for Minardi, and Alonso became test driver at Renault for a year. Webber was Benneton's (1st?) test driver in 2001, when their line-up was Fisi and Button, and once Alonso was loaned to Minardi.

Sorry, but you are wrong. This is 2001. Ginacarlo Fisichella didn't race for Renault until 2005, although he did race for them in their former guise, Benneton, in 2001. Jenson Button was his team mate and Mark Webber was the test driver. They are also wearing Benneton overalls here, not Renault. What the hell Alonso is doing there is beyond me however. Maybe he was signed up first of all one of Bennetons test drivers, before Minardi came along and asked for him to drive for them? A possibility not to rule out...

How the hell am I wrong?! Thats almost exactly what I said! When I was talking about 2002 I meant the picture I quoted, which IS 2002 and IS Renault! I even said it was Benneton and the drivers were Button and Fisichella, with Webber as test driver in 2001! I just posted the 01 pic to demonstrate the difference with the one which I am pretty sure is from 2002.

Unless I am very thick and confused, I think you mis-read my post.

For this PR op, Benetton had to make do with a cardboard cutout of Alonso.

The strangest thing about that photo is that the highest rated driver at that moment, Benetton's #1, went down the ladder all the way to being out of a drive now, yet the others are all in top cars.
