A Williams spokesman has clarified confusion about test driver Narain Karthikeyan’s continuing role for 2007.

After reports in India said the 29-year-old would race next year if either Alex Wurz or Nico Rosberg cannot, Williams’ communication manager Liam Clogger explained that Karthikeyan is not ‘guaranteed’ the reserve role at grands prix.

”Narain could be that driver, equally, it might be someone else,” he said, amid speculation that the Grove based team is keen to appoint a second test driver for 2007.

Clogger continued: ”We may appoint a second test driver, but this driver is no more likely (than Karthikeyan) to have ‘reserve’ status.”
