Dec.12 (GMM) Sauber's new reserve driver Robin Frijns could split his Formula One role next year with the German touring car series DTM.

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reports that the reigning Formula Renault 3.5 champion, who is now replacing Esteban Gutierrez as Sauber's 2013 reserve, recently tested a DTM car.

The report said the highly regarded 21-year-old Dutchman drove one of Mercedes' DTM machines at Estoril, on the basis of his "strong performance" in 2012.

"I drove as hard as possible and we'll see where it leads," Frijns confirmed.
