Hamilton on track for Formula 1 debut

Sun, 7 May 2006, 09:29

Lewis Hamilton could follow in 2006 rookie Nico Rosberg’s tyre-tracks by using the GP2 seat at team ‘ART’ as his final stepping-stone to F1.

The young Briton, with a long term relationship with McLaren and Mercedes, has been dominant this weekend at the Nurburgring, winning both races in the support category.

Foreseeably, Hamilton – who would be the first black racer in formula one – could emerge next to Fernando Alonso at the silver-clad team in 2007.

Asked whether the GP2 driver appeared ready for the pinnacle of motor sport, Michael Schumacher’s manager Willi Weber told ‘Premiere’: ”It looks like it.”
