Malaysian Fairuz Fauzy has revealed he has not yet been offered a race seat for 2010 with the new Lotus F1 team.

The outfit is set to debut next year with Malaysian ownership, and acting team principal Tony Fernandes recently confirmed that the 27-year-old World Series by Renault driver is a candidate for a seat.

"Of course, if the offer comes, it will be like a dream come true, and I'm more than ready to take it up," Fauzy, who has also raced in GP2 and the A1GP series, and tested in 2007 for the F1 team Spyker, said in the New Straits Times.

The other prominent Malaysian driver Alex Yoong, who raced in F1 with Minardi in 2002, is linked with a role as Lotus' deputy team principal.
