Nelson Piquet has named Force India 2010 season


The 23-year-old Brazilian was sacked by Renault’s Flavio Briatore earlier this year and then embroiled in the crash-gate scandal, but emerged without a ban due to his whistleblower deal with the FIA.

It has been reported that his famous father, the triple world champion of the same name, is willing to invest money to secure Piquet Jr a seat in 2010.

But Piquet has also been looking around in America; recently testing a NASCAR Truck and attending last weekend’s Phoenix event.

“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,” he is quoted as saying by Brazil’s globo.com.

“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,” Piquet explained.

Piquet, who has also been linked with the new Campos and Manor/Virgin teams, admitted that driving a NASCAR doesn’t match up to formula one, but would not rule out racing in the tin-top series.

“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,” Piquet added.
