Lucas di Grassi rates his chances of securing a deal to make his formula one debut with Manor in 2010.
The new British team on Tuesday named Timo Glock as the “lead” driver.
“My chances of landing a deal with team Manor are good,” Brazilian di Grassi, this week preparing for the forthcoming Granja Viana kart race near Sao Paulo, is quoted as saying by a Xinhua news agency report.
“They have a couple of guys they are looking at for next year, and I am one of them,” the 25-year-old added.
The Xinhua report added that di Grassi expects an answer from Manor next week.
The GP2 regular completed the 2009 season as Renault’s reserve driver.
