‘Eurosport France’ reported on Sunday afternoon from Istanbul that Toyota test driver Ricardo Zonta is on the verge of switching to the same role at Renault for 2007.

It was additionally reported that Nelson Piquet Jr, the GP2-driving son of his namesake and championship winning father, has signed a ten-year contract with Renault boss Flavio Briatore’s ‘FFBB’ driver management company.

The reports give credence to hardening speculation that current Renault tester Heikki Kovalainen is likely to be Giancarlo Fisichella’s race teammate at the team next year.
