The son of former F1 driver Johnny Cecotto is reported to be eyeing a test driver role withj Lotus for the 2011 season.

Johnny Cecotto Jr has spent recent seasons in GP2, although his role came to an early end in 2010 due to a lack of funds.

Despite that, the 21-year-old has been linked with Tony Fernandes' new GP2 team and Cecotto Jr added that talks were also ongoing an F1 role for the new campaign.

"In recent weeks I have had constant communications with the management of one formula one team who would have me for next season," he told Agencia Venezolana de Noticias. "It's an exciting proposal that would allow me to start as a test driver in November in Abu Dhabi.

"We are focused on putting together the budget that allows us to be not only a test driver in F1 but to also compete in GP2 with one of the top teams and fight for the win."
