Earlier, the 22-year-old was eagerly seeking a sponsor or two to fund his Formula One debut at his home race, the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix.

It is believed however that, for its last race with the Lotus name, Tony Fernandes' Anglo-Malaysian team will field its usual race drivers Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen.

But Razia, who tested the T128 in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, will at least get some practice laps at Interlagos.

"It will be very important to come to Sao Paulo with a good (performance) level, because people will be paying more attention there than here in Abu Dhabi.

"It is the first time I have driven a F1 car at home and, even though it's just a free practice, it has been one of my big goals.

"It will be special for I have to treat it like work and perform rather than feel the thrill of accomplishment," he is quoted by Agencia Estado.
