Nasr set for Friday role with Williams


One of the very last seats in formula one is set to be filled by rookie Felipe Nasr.

Felipe_NasrLast November, we reported that following countryman Felipe Massa’s move to Williams for 2014, another Brazilian looked set to become the official reserve driver at Grove. 21-year-old Nasr, a GP2 frontrunner, is backed by Brazilian sponsors Banco do Brasil and Sky Brasil, and managed by Kimi Raikkonen’s manager Steve Robertson.

Italy’s Autosprint now reports that Nasr looks to have signed an agreement with Williams that will involve running in Friday morning practice sessions at about half of the 19 grands prix this year. The deal for Nasr, whose surname rhymes with Massa’s, will also include “a substantial number of testing kilometers” during the season, the report added.
