Lewis Hamilton, the highly-rated young British driver, could be set to make his competitive bow in Formula One after his McLaren team revealed they were considering handing him a race seat for the season’s final grand prix in Brazil.

“Whether anything comes out of that to change our current thinking about the Brazilian GP, time will tell,” Ron Dennis told the Independent. “We are not viewing that test as an evaluation of his driving ability. It’s a chance for him to gain more mileage at a different type of circuit and for us to learn things that are important with regard to doing an event.”

Better sooner than later, and since the Bernie-the Supremo has spoken in support of Hamilton, it’s only time before he gets the F1 seat.
