A female racing driver is eying a Formula One test with the new 2010 entrant Campos.

F2 racer Natacha Gachnang, a first cousin of fellow Swiss and Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Buemi, told Spain's Marca sports newspaper that she has "been speaking" with team chief Adrian Campos.

The 21-year-old said a test is "certainly possible".

"He believes in me after we spent time together in the Spanish championship of F3," said Gachnang.

If she goes on to secure a race seat, Gachnang would be the fifth woman to attempt to qualify for Grands Prix.

The most recent was Italian Giovanna Amati, in 1992.
