Piquet eyes Force India seat

1 Mins read

Nelson Piquet Jnr has announced that he could be close to securing a deal that would see him return to the Formula 1 grid for 2010 with Force India.

Talking to globo.com he said: “I am close to Force India at the moment, but to me NASCAR is very interesting so I don’t know yet what is going to happen,”

“I don’t want to take a decision without knowing how things work here in the United States, so I came to be with the drivers and team owners,” he explained.

With rumours suggesting that Piquet Snr is willing to invest money in helping him secure a drive he admitted that Formula 1 is still very much in his mind despite a recent NASCAR test.

“It is clear that the F1 cars are very much better technologically, the best in the world, but I find that if it is enjoyable, it doesn’t matter if I am racing in karts. The important thing is to compete.”
