Timo Glock has confirmed that he is still in the running to land a test role at the BMW-Sauber team in 2007.
Although the 24-year-old German, who drove for Jordan in 2004, has signed to continue in the GP2 category next year, he will make his return to an F1 cockpit with Hinwil based BMW-Sauber this week at Barcelona.
Reports in Germany last week said an official test role alongside ‘Friday’ drive Sebastian Vettel is open.
“Of course I am hoping for a future with BMW as a test driver,” Glock confirmed to Auto Bild.
“I want to climb the ladder so that I have a chance to become a regular (F1) race driver, because I think I showed this year that I can race well.”
Glock’s employment in GP2, meanwhile, is also a further link with the formula one world, as Jonathan Williams – the son of the eponymous F1 principal – is a director with the British based ‘iSport’ team.
