Leob to test with Red Bull F1

10:35 am on 4 November 2008

World rally champion Sebastien Loeb will take part in a Formula One test with the Red Bull team in Spain this month.

His Red Bull-backed Citroen rally team say the 34-year-old Frenchman, who secured his fifth successive title in Japan at the weekend, will test an RB4 in Barcelona on November 17th after a preliminary test at Silverstone.

Loeb, who has made it clear there is no chance of him switching to Formula One, says he's going to find myself in the midst of all the regular Formula One drivers during an official test.... and is just hoping he doesn't make a fool of himself.
