Jun.19 (GMM) A female racing driver is eying a formula one test with the new 2010 entrant Campos

F2 racer Natacha Gachnang, a first cousin of fellow Swiss and Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Buemi, told Spain’s Marca sports newspaper that she has “been speaking” with team chief Adrian Campos

The 21-year-old said a test is “certainly possible”

“He believes in me after we spent time together in the Spanish championship of F3,” said Gachnang

If she goes on to secure a race seat, Gachnang would be the fifth woman to attempt to qualify for grands prix

The most recent was Italian Giovanna Amati, in 1992
