Soucek may get Williams 2010 test role

Andy Soucek tested for Williams in Jerez young drivers test

Dec.29 (GMM) New F2 champion Andy Soucek has hinted he could be installed as Williams‘ test and reserve driver in 2010.

As his prize for winning this year’s F2 series, the 24-year-old Spanish-Austrian recently tested for the British team at Jerez.

Soucek is hoping to move into a formula one race cockpit for next season, with vacancies at Campos and USF1 believed most likely.

He told the Spanish sports newspaper Marca: “I would prefer to race with any of the new teams than to be test driver with Williams.

“It is crucial to race because you learn the circuits and other things a lot better than as a tester,” Soucek added.
