Mar.12 (GMM) Mika Salo has now played down his two-day test for Ferrari this weekend.
It emerged last week that the 45-year-old Finn, who in 1999 replaced Ferrari's injured Michael Schumacher, would test the famous Maranello team's single seater at the Suzuka circuit.A spokesman insisted Salo is simply appearing as a guest during the Ferrari Racing Days event, but media speculation hinted he is playing a more crucial role amid the famous team's struggle to improve its new F2012."The news media got a bit out of hand," Salo told Finnish broadcaster MTV3."It's only a two day test for me in last year's car. If you think about it rationally, there is no benefit for the F1 team."I am 45 years old and haven't driven a single metre (in a F1 car) for ten years -- I could not give any useable feedback," he insisted.
