Dean Stoneman has earned a test with Williams after winning the 2010 Formula Two championship.
Stoneman wrapped up the title after finishing ninth in today’s race at Valencia in Spain.
The 20-year-old British driver said:
It?óÔé¼Ôäós only just starting to settle in really. Getting into Formula One has always been my dream, and this just brings me one step closer to that.
It?óÔé¼Ôäós hard to know what to expect but it?óÔé¼Ôäós obviously a fantastic opportunity to be testing a Williams Formula One car, so hopefully I can prove myself. I?óÔé¼Ôäóm just going to go there and do what I do best: get in the car and drive as fast as I can!
Stoneman is likely to get to drive the FW32 in the post-season rookie test at Abu Dhabi.
Andy Soucek, the first champion of the re-formed series last year, did not find the title ‘Formula Two champion’ to be a passport to an F1 race seat.
