Nelson Piquet Jr

Nelson Piquet Jr, the GP2-driving son of Brazil’s triple world champion, has moved into pole position to replace Heikki Kovalainen in the Renault test seat of 2007. With his Finnish predecessor set to score the plum race seat, the 21-year-old [Piquet Jr] is not only linked with the third driver role, but he has already signed a contract, according to the French portal ‘Le Blog Auto’.

It is additionally reported that Sir Frank Williams, who once tested the actually German-born Piquet Junior, was also interested in signing him, while recent rumours suggested that the rookie could be eying a race seat debut for a small team.

With Kovalainen moving to drivers seat for Renault next season, I guess that very much brought end to Kimi-moving-to-Renault theory.
