Friday debut at Sochi 'very possible' - Sirotkin

Sergey Sirotkin has the necessary licenses to compete in F1. Could it be at Sochi?

Sergey Sirotkin is still hopeful he will make his F1 weekend debut in 2014.

Earlier a shoo-in for a Sauber seat amid the Swiss team's supposed Russian rescue deal, the 18-year-old has more recently appeared to be on the backburner.

"I'm just a test driver," he told Russia 2 sports television this week.

"With the test in Bahrain I got the (super) license so it is very possible that I will drive at Sochi on Friday. At the very least I will be with the team.

"For me it's a positive thing - to gain experience.

"There are some options for next year, on which we are working very hard," Moscow-born Sirotkin added, "and I think that one of them should work out."
