Nakajima eyes F1 seat in 2007

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. 

The 21-year-old son of former F1 driver Satoru Nakajima becomes only the fourth Asian currently in Formula One. 

“My ultimate goal is to be an F1 race driver and I hope to make 2007 the year to achieve my goal,” Kazuki Nakajima said yesterday after signing his contract.” 

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