Anthony Davidson has vowed to offer his services to the Ferrari team as a potential replacement for the struggling Luca Badoer.

"I will be speaking to Ferrari personally this week to put my name forward," said the 30-year-old Briton, who was BAR/Honda's long time test driver and raced for Super Aguri as recently as last year.

Davidson travels to all the races as a commentator for British radio, and due to his reserve duties for Brawn GP earlier this year he already has a current Super License.

He said Badoer, who at Valencia began substituting for the injured Felipe Massa, did not perform to the F60's full potential in Spain.

"Luca was not anywhere near scoring points and that car is capable of doing that," Davidson is quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

"I'm ready and I think I'm better. That's not being arrogant. It's just what I believe. I've got the necessary experience that I'll get my chance in Formula One –- so why not at Ferrari?"
