Grove-based team Williams-Toyota are set to give a Spanish youngster his Formula One test debut this week.

19-year-old Dani Clos, a Catalan F3 Euroseries competitor, is set to conduct a 50km straight-line aerodynamic test with the British team at a local aerodrome, according to Spanish newspaper Diario AS.

It is suggested Clos may also get the chance to see action at the wheel of the Toyota-powered Williams next week at Jerez, the final in-season test of the 2008 season.

AS‘ said Clos is under evaluation to become a Williams test driver for 2009.

Neal’s View: Just supposing he gets the Williams gig for 2009, what happens to Nico Hulkenberg, their current test driver? Will he return to racing? Have Williams deemed him ‘not good enough’? This will pose more questions than it answers.
