New F2 champion Andy Soucek has hinted he could be installed as Williams' test and reserve driver in 2010.

As his prize for winning this year's F2 series, the 24-year-old Spanish-Austrian recently tested for the British team at Jerez.

Soucek is hoping to move into a Formula One race cockpit for next season, with vacancies at Campos and USF1 believed most likely.

He told the Spanish sports newspaper Marca: "I would prefer to race with any of the new teams than to be test driver with Williams.

"It is crucial to race because you learn the circuits and other things a lot better than as a tester," Soucek added.
