MotoGP star Max Biaggi will test a MF1 -Toyota Formula 1 car at Silverstone later today. The flamboyant Italian, known in bike circles as "The Roman Emperor", has been invited to have this Formula 1 experience at the 3.1-mile British Grand Prix and World Superbike venue by MF1 Racing, the Formula One team owned and operated by the Midland Group.

Max Biaggi "I am really excited about driving the Midland F1 car. I must thank everyone in the team for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to comparing the thrills of MotoGP and F1."

Biaggi had a seat-fitting with the Silverstone-based team yesterday and he will take over driving duties from regular MidlandF1 driver Christijan Albers, who is testing for the team this morning.
