TOKYO: Japan's Kazuki Nakajima (pic) has moved further in his father's footsteps by signing as a test driver with Williams Formula One – but says he won't be satisfied until he's in the races.

Nakajima joins India's Narain Karthikeyan as a Williams test driver in preparation for the 2007 season that starts in Melbourne in March.
