23-year-old Spaniard Villa, who drives a BMW in the world touring car championship, has reportedly been targeted for a prominent role in 2012 by Hispania's new owner Thesan Capital.

"Yes, it's all true," he responded to the speculation when asked by Italiaracing.

"I have a good chance to debut in F1 with Hispania."

The Italian report said Villa could start off with a Friday practice driving role in the very near future before he makes his Grand Prix debut in Liuzzi's place in Brazil in late November.

"F1 is a great and definitely unexpected opportunity," said Villa's advisor Jose Ramon Galan. "We'll see how the situation evolves."
