D’Ambrosio targets full-time seat

Jerome D'Ambrosio hopes to use his Friday runs with Virgin to secure a 2011 F1 race seat
Jerome D'Ambrosio has set his sights on securing a full-time F1 role on the back of his Friday outing for Virgin Racing in Singapore.

The Belgian driver took part in Friday practice on the Singapore streets and will return to action in Japan, Korea and Brazil before the end of the year as part of a development programme with the F1 newcomers.

Having produced a solid performance in relation to team-mate Timo Glock in Singapore, D'Ambrosio said it was a 'realistic goal' to think he can secure a place on the 2011 grid, although he admits that a good performance in his remaining outings for Virgin will go a long way to deciding how good his chances are.

“I'm working behind the scenes to form a solid project and scope,” he told ToileF1.com. “The ball is in our court.

“As always in Formula 1, until the last moment it's like you're very close and very far from getting there at the same time. I do feel, however, that the possibility of seeing me race in 2011 is realistic - fingers crossed.

“The key is to be reactive, to make the most of the situation. For this reason, my four sessions at the wheel of the Virgin car will be very important.

“My goal: if a space becomes available somewhere, my name should be included in the list of drivers who are asked.”

D'Ambrosio, a former winner of the Formula Master crown, has spent recent seasons running in GP2.
