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.
