Champ Car driver Mario Dominguez had the shortest Formula One career of all time, completing just one lap in a Jordan F1 car at Silverstone. Jordan was testing its new car at Silverstone with drivers Tiago Montiero and Narain Karthikeyan taking up most of the running time. Dominguez was scheduled to get out in the car in the afternoon but fog and rain meant the medical helicopter could not safely take off. He completed one very slow installation lap before returning to the pits. There were rumours linking him to a drive with the team at the time but he returned to Champ Cars and most recently raced in the FIA GT series.
