Alain Prost's son is set to test with the Formula One team Renault.

29-year-old Nicolas Prost, whose famous father won four world championships and has run a team, told La Provence newspaper that he is set to drive the Lotus-sponsored car in 2011.

He said the test will take place "soon, in England".

Most recently, Prost Jr has raced sports cars, but he also contested the defunct A1 series when the French team was run by now Renault boss Eric Boullier.

Nicolas Prost is not ruling out a late F1 tilt.

"Formula one teams have emerged from the 'baby driver' era," said Prost. "So I hope to arrive in grands prix within two to three years."

Alain Prost came close to winning his first title with Renault in 1983.
